    @ Copperband. This should give him a laugh.
    I have used the dreaded Jebo skimmers for a long time, however after all the comments I have decided to install a Reeftek TS2 in my tank. Will let you know the results.

    I think you will be pleasantly surprised Rod. Very nice skimmers that perform very well in my opinion.

    Three hours down the line and no skimmate! Only kidding. I am willing to eat humble pie if it really makes a difference

    Nice upgrade, you may have to wait a few days if the skimmer is new.

    Yes thats a weeks worth. Still a little liquid for my liking, so I am going to lower the outlet pipe a touch more. The skimmer is flat on the bottom of my sump, the water level in the sump is 220 mm. I have adjusted the outlet so the air/liquid level can just be seen above the black ring. I hope that makes sense?

    :lol:

    nah, I'm glad you're happy with it, always nice to see someone happy with a piece of equipment they buy, especially when they are a bit sceptical about it initially. Good for you :)

    Now all we need is some photo's of this tank ;)
