    Hi fellow reefers.

    I am so stoked about my new skimmer and sump setup that i cant wait for it to be installed. Has anyone got the Reefoctopus bubbleblaster skimmer and what are your thoughts on them?

    Going to have one of these :peroni: when my new sump is installed.:tt2:

    I have a 3000 int bubble blaster and it s a brilliant skimmer. Run the skimmer in a bath of freshwater with vinegar for a few hours to clean it thouroughly. The skimmer will skim wet and then dry for a few weeks but give it time to settle. The only issue I have with it is to clean the pump as it is a bit difficuilt to take apart and clean the parts

    The Bubble blaster has long been the benchmark skimmer in SA. Its only now that there are vertex skimmers, but BB is top stuff!
