    Is anybody here running the Aquamedic Blue 1000 or 3000 skimmers? I'm looking for some experience on how they perform etc. Thanks.

    I have not used or come across this skimmer. however the Hailea pump that drives that model looks very similar to that of the earlier models. IME the models I have come across have been problem some. My perception of the older models may be biased and there fore convincing tainted some.

    IMO do a deal with the D-D. guys. :whistling: good quality and you can always rib them if not satisfied. :biggrin:

    I bought one a few months ago, the pump only worked for a week, it was damaged, they offered to exchnage it but the freight back and forth from Costa Rica to the US was more expensive than the skimmer. I did some DIY and conected a regular powerhead with an air hose and works OK. I think that if I get a better pump it would work better, however, with the original pump and with the current one, I never could stop the microbubbles, had to put a sponge in the outlet.
