Very cool. I have the Aeraqua as well, but have not explored the controller capabilities at all! I just leave it on level 7 with the adjustments on the body/pumps wide open, and it pulls out some nasty gunk!
Yes established tank no problem run it all the time the new tank doesn't need as much. The icv6 is $50 and well woth it for me because I run gyres as well

How is the Ozone test for the skimmer coming along?
Hi, thanks for your support. After more than a month's test, we found that Aeraqua duo skimmers are not able to use the Ozone Air, otherwise, its pipes or base might get eroded by the Ozone Air. So for this question, the answer is negative.

Thank you for the quick attention - I am happy to hear that the test(s) are being conducted. I forgot the "Season's Greetings" in my post - I hope yourself and the team can have some enjoyable time over this holiday season and look forward to a complete test (regardless of result). Thanks for all this :) .
Can you give an update on the ozone tests

Is the araquã duo safe for running ozone
Can you give an update on the ozone tests
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

Maxspect performed testing for over a month (thanks, guys!) and recently concluded that the AD600 skimmer is not ozone safe.

^You can see their response with photos in this thread.


On the bright side, at least you know before trying it so something disastrous didn't happen.

How are you liking the skimmer so far otherwise?

[email protected]'ve been using the duo 600 for 5 or 6 months with no issues. I've been skimming kinda on the wet side.

Pulling this much daily. The Last week or so I've been getting micro bubbles in the display. I tracked it down to the skimmer chamber. Also noticed water leaking from the side where the nob is on the body.

Could these issues be related?
How do I stop the micro bubbles?
Should I be concerned about the leak?
The skimmer is still doing it job but don't like micro bubbles...thanks in advance.

Hi, thanks for your support. It's normal the water leakage from the top or sides of the water outlet dial. As you know, once you turn it to a larger power, and fully open the water inlets, while at the same time close down the water outlet, the water in the chamber will get higher, and have no way to go but escape from the water outlet dial. The solution would be turn up the water outlet a little bit, turn down the water inlet, or turn down the power. So there will be a balance of water inside the chamber instead of escaping from the leakage above the dial.

As for the micro bubbles, they also come from the issue that the water level inside the chamber is too high, it needs to adjust the water level to a lower height, then there will be little or no micro bubbles escaping to the sump.
