Skimmer Mod

PVC on the skimmer for biopellet water intake


    Nice. How long have you been using it this way? Do you notice any difference in performance (better or worse)?

    Purpose?
    It's recommended to feed the effluent of a bio pellet reactor directly into the protein skimmer (which is required) or near your skimmers intake pump. I haven't hooked mine up yet, so it's nice to see how others have done it. However, it looks like the intake Tee reduces the skimmer's intake slightly. That's why I was wondering about the effect on skimmer performance.
    thats how I had mine but changed to run the outflow into fuge instead of skimmer. seem to get better cheato growth.
    I get much darker skim love this mod its still has good flow too
