    Hi Guys, I thought I post quicky the first pictures of my 2nd built.
    This bubbleblaster 3000 pump is really worth the money.
    The outlet from the bubbleblaster goes into the chamber 30cm above the bottom.
    Total height including neck is almost 1m and the pump fills every ml with air. Unbelievable result for just 35 watts. I should have put the pump outlet 5 to 10 cm higher as there is almost no clear water at the bottom of the skimmer.
    After switching the pump off, the water level drops a few cm below the collection cup.

    Thanks guys, I could have made it much neater, but it had to be practical and cheap.
    Really cheap didn't work out because of the pumps price, but the performance is outstanding. Which pump fills one metre column with air?
