    And it is running on air stones. Well a lot of big air stones. Just shows you, needle wheel pin wheel, or whatever is the latest rage is not needed. And that is one hell of a big skimmer. Check the wheely dustbin in the background. And that is a 200L Rubbermaid tub it is standing in.

    Deltec actually sells air-stone driven skimmers (as does Bubble Magus). I think that one of these brands had a "professional series" of skimmers that are air-stone driven....

    Airstones DO WORK - BUT, are a LOT more maintenance than venturi type skimmers.
