    Hi, when I got home this afternoon the protien skimmer was not running. I took it apart, and the pump has burnt out. It is a Weipro WH-900 pump on a Weipro Magic Wave 102 tank. The skimmer chamber has a dimension of approximately 85mm x 90mm x 320mm deep. Does anyone have one of these pump for sale, or a small skimmer that will fit into that compartment.

    Now that the tank is running without a skimmer, what should I do to prevent a disaster from happeniing

    Depending on your bio-load probably a few weeks

    Feed less and more frequent water changes. Adding some bacteria will help aswell

    Speak to Lawrence from @Aquaria-SA. The Aquaria AMW102 tank is very similar to the Magic Wave and he may be able to supply you with just the skimmer.

    You can also speak to @Submariner, the JNS and Hydor nano skimmers might fit and would be a good upgrade.

    @juan R - thanks for the offer, but the TS2 is way to big to fit in the skimmer compartment @Toolboysa - the current stock leve in he tank is very light, (3 clowns, 1 cardinal, 2 cleaner shrimps, 2 hermit crabs, 1 pyramid snail, 1 pistol shrimp, 1 scooter goby and 1 boxing shrimp, mushroom). Will do a water change tomorrow. @ScottK - will contact the guys you have mentioned and see what alternatives they have available.


    Thanks for the offers to help and info.
