    Looks really good @ricky !!

    Any newer pics for us ;) As a matter of interest do you suffer the micro bubbles syndrome!! Mine drives me nuts... in pursuit of the crystal clear water, but the micro bubbles drives me bananas!! :m85::m87:

    @Hingis i used to have microbubbles and drove me bananas to. How long have you had the microbubble problem for? What i figured out to stop the bubbles was a balance between water level and the air inlet suction. If the flow in the back compartment was to much and air suction to llittle, the skimmer would leak air bubbles.

    Thanks for the updated pic! looks stable!! still got your babies, :m106:

    My micro bubbles have been there since date of install... ie months! what I have noticed, it might be kind of ok for a few seconds then a squirt/blast of bubbles come though 1 shot, then good again for a few seconds then a blast of more... The microbubbles eventually build up bigger and bigger that they stick to the rock, does not look very nice.. wish I could get rid of the bubbles altogether... Yes I noticed the water level is critical as you say.. I try to keep my tank as full as possible always. regarding the air in the back, are you referring to adjusting the air valve from the skimmer? I am not to clued up on the skimmer part and the correct position of the air valve. I seem to remember just setting it roughly half open so the foam up the skimmer neck looked about right.. how do you adjust the water flow in the back? Of course I have both my flow pumps running constantly. apart from that , I have cut the black sponge in half, I heard that was supposed to help, made no difference for me, then I have some white cotton filter sponge for the little bits to get caught, and the ceramic beads... Maybe I should play with the air valve on the skimmer more.

    Normally a constant stream of bubbles would be caused by the skimmer. A break in the bubbles stream is normally caused by the flow pumps. Have you pulled out the power centre and looked through to see if it is the skimmer leaking the bubbles? Yes im refering to the valve from the skimmer. The height of the surface skimmer determines the amount of flow going to the back. Have you done a thorough clean of the skimmer yet?

    Do you find the tank scratches very easily ? I also have one, but I keep noticing new scratches. I try really hard not to scratch the tank but it just keeps happening.
