Hi Matt, I'm in Honeoye. There is a finger lake named Honeoye, the town is on the north end. 1 hour south of downtown Rochester but that doesn't help because your in Elmira.

PM me your phone number or send me a PM and we'll try to connect.

I got it for free from a friend, it's fantastic. I lucked out because they are very expensive.

Try Caplans in East Rochester on Dispatch drive. They have lots of plastic drums and tanks. But Iam not sure if they sell retail.

Lots of interest but it's still available. Please, someone pick this up, it's truly incredible.



...if not, there may be a really, really lucky individual at the reef meet.

If you look at my sump pic above, it was previously a calcium reactor, the head on my skimmer was too small, so I cut it off and put it on the calcium reactor. They are the perfect size. Then I modded a Quiet One 6000 with mesh.

This would easily skim a heavily stocked 220.

Hey Fatrip, didn't see the post.
