    After all the research i have done i have decided that this skimmer will be too big for my system. Its submariners skimmer with a BRAND NEW pump.

    LOL no never since my very early FW days i knew soap was a killer (learnt the hard way after we "Cleaned" the tank and everything died). No thats some vinegar in the water to give it a leka clean. Really shows the power of that pump

    the old pump had an issue with the impellar(the part at the end that goes into the pump) and due to that the back of the block got damaged causing a very loud whirring sound,

    Hi Ziaad, i really dont think it will have trouble to build up a decent head of foam, here is some pics of my bb5000int with no bio load, no live rock, just some rinsed in salt water carab sea araglive. I am not running the skimmer at the moment just switched it on to see what it would do, here is the the build up after just 20 mins.

    LOL thanks man but i really think that once you have livestock in it will make the difference. remember this is the initial start up so there will be organics once its all gone there will be nothing in and it will only work again once there is enough in again. I will also be going back to my original plan of not having a huge bioload hence it will not work out for me.
