I can see it now... Current live stock, 30 yellow tangs.. Nitrates, 0ppm.

Do you still have your big SPS tank?

I bought that skimmer for the big tank, but then took down the big tank, but I already had the skimmer, so.......yeah, the rest is history lol. Besides, you know I love overkill lol

I really do need a fan or something on that tank though. The temperature is getting out of hand...

I like the overkill, its kind of fitting....

Does it actually pull much out with 2 clowns?

Lol! That is the funniest thing I have seen in a while

I like the tank though. The shallow long look really makes a nano look sweet!

That's going to involve some tricky plumbing. Right now I'll run the water just under the level where water enters the reaction chamber and see how it foams. If that doesn't work, then a check valve is my only other option.

I'm actually looking at picking up one a new reef octopus skimmer for my new tank.
How's it been for you so far? I have one of the smaller HOB ones and it's fantastic on my 40.

Skimmer works fairly well. I didn't like the original venturi setup, so I modified mine a bit and it seems to suck in much more air now. The foam it creates is pretty thick, but, unfortunately I need to run the water level a lot higher in the skimmer than I would have liked.
