Im not actually sure have not even looked!! But its an eco runner 3500 on that skimmer! LOL . I have the 6000 but at 1.5 it does about 7000 or maybe even 8 000 and it is like 60 watts! that means skimmer and pump 100w!!!!! What a win!:thumbup:

Hey guys. I am running a AM1000TF and lately it's only producing wet skimmate no matter how I set it. I clean the cup twice a day. The tank has been running for a little over 2 years it's around 900l and just want to know is this skimmer too small for this tank or am I right in upgrading to a bigger skimmer?

Wet skimmate tells me that water level is a bit high within the body of the skimmer...the venturi might be slightly clogged...could you check this?
My opinion is to upgrade the skimmer...not because of the issue you experiencing but because the newer skimmers have their advantages...

Hi Ridwaan.

I clean the pump often. The water level is a bit high but has been that way for awhile. I took the skimmer out of the sump for a day and seemed to still run wet cleaned the cup just as often. This started when I started dosing Nopox.
