Has anyone tried the Corallife Protein Skimmer V-2 in chamber 1 of an LED 32 Biocube? I've read several reviews of the original Biocube Skimmer and it had mixed reviews as an air stone skimmer. Is the newer needle wheel version an improvement? I'm not a fan of skimming previously filtered water as suggested by some. If I can't skim in chamber 1, I'll go skimless. Thoughts?

I know i'm a few months behind on this, but I am currently running the V-2 Coralife skimmer with great results on my Biocube 32. It does run a bit wetter then i perfer, but it really has done a great job of pulling some nasty skim. I think there may be a picture or too on my build thread.

Stelleywags, thanks so much for your response. In the meantime, I did add the 115 mini skimmer to my equipment collection. I'll be setting up my Biocube when we move to Virginia in April. I'm thinking of using the modification that Reefthuz did replacing suction cups with magnets. I reviewed your build thread and see where your skimmer is doing a great job for its size. Your tank looks great as well.

Thank you!, Make sure to start a build thread when you set your Biocube up so I can follow along!

I plan to, Stellywags. I have modified the cabinet so by attaching refrigerator moving wheels I can roll it away from the wall for easier maintenance. I also installed an 8 plug outlet with individual switches. I trying to have only one "umbilical" cord plugged into the wall.
