    info and pump help on BK300

    Hello, I purchased a complete setup in hopes to set it up at my house. Unfortunately the tank wouldn't work out where we thought it would so I'm now downsizing to a 350. the new tank doesn't have enough room for this skimmer so I'm most likely going to sell it and get a smaller footprint...

    Thanks chelsey, I think I'll see what they do and if I get them going good I may try the tile and getting it to you, or giving it a try myself a little later. I hope to get some free time this week and do a lot of reading on it too. Isn't it a clay tile I want to use? I'll go ahead and put...

    Favorite sps 250 watt bulb

    I've been wanting to switch to Radiums but I have Ice cap Electronic ballasts and everything I read says they won't push them right. Now I got to find some magnetic ballasts to make the switch

    ATB Skimmer micro bubbles

    thanks, I will let it run another day and pull the pump out tomorrow night to look at the air tube. I know it is sucking a lot of air when I put my finger over the tube there is a lot of suction. I will give it a try if something doesn't happen soon

    ATB Skimmer micro bubbles

    I was thinking about trying that. does it matter what micron or will anything do? I don't want to get one too small and hold up the water too much

    ATB Skimmer micro bubbles

    and another video of the tank. excuse the poor quality and the algae, pulling the remains of the hair algae I had in the tank a little at a time. I did replace the impeller in the pump, that is the only thing I've done to this skimmer and it makes nice bubbles so wouldn't think that has an...

    ATB Skimmer micro bubbles

    These things are still terrible. The display looks dark there are so many bubbles coming out. I took a quick vid of the skimmer running to see if anyone notices anything weird. I have it on a pvc stand and running in exactly 8.5" of water. I just want these bubbles to go away! <object...

    ATB Skimmer micro bubbles

    Just got the ruler out and I have it set at exactly 8" so I should be good there. I figured there was some break in time but just thought there were too many bubbles coming out at the bottom. I'll update in a day or two.

    ATB Skimmer micro bubbles

    Its new to me but not brand new. I had the shaft break on the pump and finally got it replaced. I just got it going and it makes a ton of bubbles but too many come out of the return pipe now

Now it is back to its old ways of overfilling. does the sensor get dirty or not sense right over time? right now my sump is about 5" too deep and its still running over....It has done this before but I...

    Osomolator problems

    I have had my osomolator setting on a shelf for about 5 months while I switched tanks. now I just hooked it back up and the "too high" light is on and it beeps. also the too low is flashing. it worked perfect when I disconnected it and I had just put a new pump on it before I took it down. I...
