The wooden airstones used to be used in the VERY OLD Berlin type counter-current skimmers.....

Since the venturi/pump driver skimmers became popular, the wooden air-stone driver skimmers went off the market, and the wooden airstones were not produced in bulk anymore....

Who still uses the Berlin (uplift) air skimmer, and the Red Sea Berlin counter-current air-stone skimmer?

I know that I started off with one of these - 3 years ago - BUT, I would think that the advances in marine's keeping, and the advances in the knowledge of the people (incl. the people at the shops) should at least stop people from even trying to use these skimmers.... I mean - a WeiPro is just a LITTLE bit more expensive, as is a ReefTek TS1 - with the TS1 being a MUCH better skimmer than the WeiPro, and the WeiPro being a MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better skimmer than the Red Sea Berlin airlift/counter-current skimmers.....
