    Really don’t know why some of these things hit the market; I have bought 2 x disappointing skimmers this month to set up a quarantine tank for juvenile season. One is A Resure SK-05 and the other is a Dolphin Ps 2012. I think I might have better luck with a old Berlin skimmer of 20 years back or maybe a coke bottle skimmer. Or maybe i can adopt a kid that blows bubbles through a straw with a pine block attached

    I must disagree !!

    I think its a lime wood air stone that were used in the old days , not pine :p

    Weve also gone through our fair share of skimmers - really enjoy Reef Octo range.

    Good luck on your next buy.
