Ok im in a DIY mood and having the advantage of a brother in law that works at Astore and a machine workshop at work (being in the engeneering field), i am going to attempt to add a second OR3500 pump to my AM TF5000 baby skimmer..my only problem is finding the curved mounting seal to do it as neatly and make it look as origional as possible.. i will never sell this skimmer in sight of getting a bigger tank so might as well play with it.. Hope to have the first AM TF5000 BABY TWIN :whistling:

help me find this part or a plan to manufacture it:

I have an Aquamedic Turbofloter and works wonders. I want to know why people say that skimmer had its days. They do a great job skimming, and dont ned to be upgraded for any other make skimmer. People always blaming the skimmer, when things go wrong in there reef tank. Does anybody have Aquamedic skimmers hooked up on a heavy loaded tank, I want to see.

they definatley kick ass... my skimmer just hasnt run for a while due to plumbing issues and size.. im not a fan of the shorty though.. not sure why... however there are many cheaper skimmers equally suited to do the same or higher capacitys for a far better prices.. i think aquamedic's problem is the price not necessarily the effieciency...
