im buying it from someone as a set a 55g tank, stand, sump and skimmer all for 325. he said the skimmer is a kent nautilus skimmer and thats all he told me. i was just wondering if thats a good skimmer or not.
The Nautilus TE is designed to sit in a sump beneath the main aquarium. It is not designed to stand alone
outside a sump. It is recommended that a pump capable of delivering 650-900 gph (2,461-3,407 lph) at 0’
head be used to operate the Nautilus TE; lower flow will not allow the Turbo•Eductor fitting to operate at full
efficiency, and higher flow may not allow water to exit the skimmer at a sufficient rate. For maximum
efficiency, the pump (not included) should be located as close to the Nautilus TE as possible.
The ones I have seen at the LFS had Rios on there and they are a POS.
Why don't you post some pictures of your skimmer in action?? I can get a cup full of crap with any skimmer if the water is full of crap, or I can get nothing out of my tank with a $3,000 BK if the water happens to be pristine.
