tangtang long time no talk. How is that Bubble Blaster pump working on your 200? I just ordered one to replace the sicce. I am tired of the long startup issues.

Not sure if this will help you, but I on my Octo Extreme 160 I put the Red Devil Pinwheel and it eliminated any start up issues. I have still been looking at the Bubble Blasters to see if it will increase performance, but if you want to try and prevent the annoying start up issues and still have similar if not better performance than the purple pinwheels then you might want to look into the red devil pinwheel.

They are totally two different animals, even though the modded 160 was reliable and did a good job it doesn't come close to the Cone.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated, I have a 75 G with a 15G sump, still not sure if the Cone would be too much on my system.

Replacing the Sicce pump with the bubble blaster.

I need a fitting for the top of my OTP-3000 pump. It looks like it is 3/4" but I have gone to lowes to try to make something work and nothing fits. If anyone has this part or knows where to get it PLEASE let me know!

Probably a metric size, so mm not inches.

I will be hooking up a BB5K this weekend to an Octo Extreme 300 along with one Sicce pump. Does anyone know if the neck extensions are still available, or are the current extensions for the super reef octo's the same size?

I have a BB3000 ( I think this is the same as the HY3000) and I have not experienced this issue thus far.

I have to ask, have you take the pump out and checked all the parts? Is the airline clogged/blocked?

It was till I lost the receipt. But I just spoke to premium aquatics and ordered the hy-3000s. Supposed to be the 3rd gen of these pumps so I'm crossing my fingers. Next time I'm moving on the another skimmer
