I was looking at that skimmer for my set up, but couldn't see spending the money on a fairly new and unknown brand. Went with the rusted Reef Octopus again. Going from a NW 150 to an extreme xs 200.

Warner Marine MF-121. This is two days of skimmate on my 60 cube. I have one fish (yellow watchman goby) and a fire shrimp...

Hello friends. I'm from Moscow, sorry for my English. I have ATI BM200 old version. Please tell me what the water level must be for him? Exit pipe must be on the water or higher than water? I have a bubbles, but don't have skimmat :( The skimmer pump is Aqua Medic Ocean Runner 3500 with needle wheel. Thanks for reply.

neither, AquaC EV-180 constantly needs adjusting and uses a power using pump, not a fan of the asm and the sedra is another pump using too many watts

not really a more powerful pump and pulls alot less air, has the issue been since you started using this pump ? check the airline and venturi for bloackage or partial bloackage, pour some hot water down the tube and make sure there is nothing caught in the impellar
