    I just hope that they don’t go after everything in the tank! The clown was already strutting his stuff yesterday going after anyone who was near the nori when he was.

    Today was a MESS!!! 63157416229__23F878EE-BDF5-408E-8E2C-6A1597E594F8.JPG
    The skimmer went out last week. The pump (Reeflo dart)is seized up and needs to be resealed. I had a ASM G4X that I was bringing in today until I can repair the old skimmer. When I got in today though the auto feeder decided that it would feed 2-3 weeks worth of pellets in 5 days. So did a massive water change and got the ASM online. Probably go in again tomorrow and change out another 75-100 gallons.

    Need to borrow back that snapper? I also have a bubble blaster RO skimmer. I am not using right now. Not big enough for that behemoth, but might help?

    I do have a spare pump, but I really appreciate the offer! I’ll just wait until the parts come in and go from there. I’m actually thinking about rebuilding it without the dart and trying something different.

    Those reef flow pumps really piss me off! Always an issue. Can’t count how many failures I hear about.

    That’s why I think I’m done with it.

    What would you end up going with? I thought they were regarded as one of the best options if you had the space/plumbing for external?

    Not sure. Right now the ASM is working and if it continues to be adequate I may just stick with it. I may also talk to Jeff Turchek and see what he’s got that might work.

    You can change it to the dolphin pump they have better seals in them
