    Just managed to install the RDC 850c HOB on our 1200x600x600 tank today. The BH2000 we had running for a year on this tank has served it well.

    Please note that this is NOT a review as it will be biased :) So not much said.

    But here are some pics:

    Was a pleasure dude and im very happy that our definition of silent is the same ;-) you should be getting better sleep now.

    I got myself the nano 150 on Tuesday. The first thing that impressed me was the packaging of the skimmer. Open opening the box every thing was neatly packed. There was even an welcome guide and installation instructions. Also included were possible problems with the skimmer and easy ways to solve those issues.. I put the skimmer together rather quickly. Was really simple. After I installed the skimmer I noticed it was producing foam a lot. Will attach pictures. After about two days I adjusted the water level on the skimmer. You can do that as it came with a hang on clip that u can tighten on anywhere on the skimmer. its only been 5 days now.. not sure on the actual break in period as skimmer is still new. Although it has settled down a lot. The skimmer is quiet enough for you to place in your bedroom. The air pump feeding my bio cubes makes more noise.

    Commenting seeing as I'm looking at these skimmers. @reef addict - it doesn't count when you add sunlight liquid to make more bubbles :lol: Looks like it's skimming like a Devil (All pun intended)
