i can not say i have tried a lot of skimmers but i have been running the 65 for a few months and i love it.. it pulls a ton of junk out (price does not hurt either LOL)

well i finnished building everything and i bought the skimmer and 10 lbs of live rock and the tank water is clear but im having problems with this skimmer... it keeps overfloving with just water no mater what setting its on anybody know what i should do??

raise the skimmer up higher out of the water

Splinter492 08-16-2010 03:37 PM

im not too sure how... should i set something underneath it? like maybe a rock?

a rock would create an un-even surface.. maybe build a basic plexi-glass box as a riser or using something food/tank safe to get it up higher.
