    Good stuff. Are you able to lower the T5's or is that their set height?

    Just a quick update, got home last night to find my skimmer not working.
    After openning the pump, I find the ceramic shaft broken, this after a week of use.
    More importantly, I've added a few sps frags, nursing some that are bleached.
    Will post some pics over the weekend.

    Pity about the impellor. Is skimmer still under warranty?

    So recieved my new impellor on tuesday (20/09/16), got home today, skimmer not working.
    Openned the pump to find the impellor broken, the second impellor lasted 3 days, first one 7 days.
    Sheesh, thought Vertex was supposed to be quality.
    Rather dissapointing regarding the inconsistency of my tank being skimmed.
