    After 8 years of running my first attempt at a DIY protein skimmer it sprung several leaks. Could not repair so had to junk the body.

    RIP old friend

    After the success of my previous one I just had to go DIY again. Got some designs off the internet for a HOB. Constructed body out of Perspex sheets. Glue user was Magma Bond C1 (designed to chemical bond acrylic). Was a bit messy to use but once filled with water the seams look great.

    This is what I came up with. First test looks promising.
