I‘m going to give it all the time it needs because a new skimmer isn’t in the budget right now. I’m in the moving business so I still get to work theoretically but there aren’t many clients right now. I’ll have a decent March but April and beyond aren't looking so great. Whenever my commissions dwindle so does the reefing budget. No new equipment for me for a while.Give it time. You will know if it's good for your system within 2 or 3 weeks but I really hope it does not take that long.
I’d like to try the Nuvo dc skimmer but I’ve discovered from the ghost skimmer that I don’t like how the pump sits inside the body. It’s super difficult to take apart and clean. I’m intrigued by the Cadlights PLS50 elite because I've seen some good reviews and the pump isn’t surrounded by the skimmer body which I’m certain will make maintenance or replacement easier. At least I hope that’s the case but I’m gonna run with the Aquamaxx for a while and see if it improves. Might even run the ghost skimmer in some citric acid and see if that helps it since taking it apart doesn’t seem to be an option.I’ve tried a few different skimmers on my nuvo 20. Best one I’ve gotten too is the nuvo dc skimmer.
Yeah, I’m hoping for some new growth on it. I really like the coral but the heads are a little small to really get all that color visible unless you zoom way in on it. I don’t know that it’s ever going to have a real prominent place in the reef because of that. I did super glue it, and a couple of the others, to it’s rock today so there shouldn’t be anymore knockovers from crabs and snails.Tank looks good, shame about the acan but at least some of the heads look happy. You know now that I’m thinking of it, what I think people were doing is buying the innovative Marine bioskim DC skimmer for $50 on amazon and putting the pump from that on the ghost. Not sure if they are discontinued but they only have a few left. I think that’s what it was.
