    NYOS 160 Skimmer Drain Outlet Improvements?

    Any DIY or store bought solutions for this odd skimmer drain outlet on NYOS 160? I just have a kinked hose that comes out of it. Less than ideal. Was hoping someone else came up with or found a solution.

    Using a Biocube protein skimmer in sump?

    Does anyone know if you can effectively use a Biocube protein skimmer in a sump? I'm thinking it will still work as effectively, but was just curious if anyone has done this? This is the one I'm thinking of...

    Is it possible to protein skim too much?

    I am just getting back into reefing, and I'm going to be setting up a 150 gal tank. But, in the next couple years I am going to upgrade to a tank around 300 gallons, so I want to purchase equipment that I can use on the 150, as well as on the larger tank I purchase down the line. I was thinking...

    Reef Octopus Protein Skimmer 202-S

    This is the newest version of CoralVu's in-sump space saver skimmer. I purchased in May and used it 18 days (just long enough to break in). Sadly, it is much too large for my 75 gal system. This is a situation where bigger wasn't better. It worked great after break-in, but not consistently...

    SCA-301 Skimmer won't fit together properly

    Already, I'm feeling pretty dumb right now but in my defense there are no assembly instructions haha. When putting the skimmer body on to the pump, it's not sitting flat because a piece of the 'nozzle' won't let the skimmer slide all the way down. Am I doing something wrong or is this a design...

    Help choosing skimmer

    Last week I picked up the Instant Ocean SeaClone as I had a gift card for PetSmart and I figured well what the heck I'll try it. Now it's barely even breaking in and has some other negative aspects which I feel unsure of. I only paid $100 and I know there are some other skimmers I can get for...
