    Hi, I have a Weipro Magic Wave 102 that comes with a standard skimmer. Is the standard skimmer sufficient, or is there something else available on the market that fits perfectly and does a much better job?

    And in which compartment should the skimmer be, first or second. At the moment I have it in the first compartment and a sponge in the second. The third is a refugium with some LR rubble in the fourth and the return pump and heater in the fifth. I have also added a sock with some Purigen in the last compartment.


    Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

    @mandrin - I am not sure how long the tank was running with the previous owner, but I've had it for a bit more than a month. The return pump has been upgraded to a 1000 liter per hour and Purigen was added to the last compartment. An Phosban reactor has also purchased, but not installed yet.

    Every thing seems to be running without any problems at the moment. Have you made and modifications to the original filtration.
