    Hi Komodo! The start of you tank looks EXTREMELY well thought out! Congrats! PS: What skimmer is that? And what is the task of the air pump next to the skimmer in that pic?

    Thanks Jac.,Alan

    Ya this is my 3rd attemt in marines as i was in fw for 10 years.The planning comes from trile and error of my previous setups.

    Jacques this is a DIY skimmer and the air pump is for more bubbles as the resun pump does not make enough by it self.

    Must admit i feel proud on my skimmer she woks like a bomb.:yeahdude:

    Komodo - Cool man! Thanks for the answers... That air-pump is an AWESOME mod! I have done the EXACT same thing to my TS2, and the skimming improved more than 10 times! I am getting skimmate out of my ReefTek TS2 like there's no tomorrow! Awesome skimmer of yours for DIY though!
