My LFS said my skimmer was no good-What?
I put together a hang on skimmer from parts that seems to work pretty good. The collection box may need a little mods.My LFS said that only skimmers using designed components [collection box, pump, etc] would work correctly. Do I hear a sale of a skimmer from him ringing in my ears?

ha I just made a skimmer out of a 2 liter bottle, some clear PVC and an air stone and air pump. It seems to work fine. Just a question, was this a chain store?

As a general rule, whenever I see the phrase "my LFS told me....." I know that something is about to be worth a good laugh.
