    Hey Guys,

    I have a JNS-2 skimmer and must admit that I have been a bit slack with my cleaning of it. It now has quite a big algae build up inside the main cone which I would like to clean up .... is it possible to take this skimmer apart for cleaning and then putting it back together again ?

    Dump it in a big container with about 20l water and 5l vinegar. Let it soak for a few hours and wipe it clean with a cloth.
