Ha... I kinda see it now that you mention it... With the arms flinging up. Yeah I think I'm gonna stay with the layout 2.

I ordered NeoMarine salt along with some other goodies which should be here tomorrow so more updates coming soon.

Sup Andy... The flow isnt that bad. Maybe due to my poor plumbing job? lol... I got a really good deal on the mag 12 new so I jumped on it... I read up on the eheim 1262 and will most likely change when I get the chance.

What happened to the other posts? Anyways... I got water in and the salinity is at a stable 1.024. Need to do param testing when I get home from work.

I made a durso pipe for the overflow but it makes a gurgling noise once every 5 seconds or so. Any suggestions on how to make this go away?

You might want to play with hole size in the top of the durso. It needs to breath and is sucking air, almost like gasping for breath.

Thanks Bret, I made the hole bigger and the thing works like a charm now. No flushing or gurgling at all.

Is it normal for the skimmer to produce white foam for the first 2 days and not skim anything at all? I was thinking this is normal since there are no live stock in the tank but just wanted to make sure.

Nice tank.

Is it a new skimmer? It usually takes about a week or two to break in plus you dont have much to skim so I think it is normal.

Thank S2K, and no its a used skimmer tunze 9005 it was pulling some more foam when i checked this morning. I read the manual and it said to play around with the nozzle to adjust some stuff.. The tunze manuals sucks! They dont know how to explain it very well.
