Reefer69 Posted January 10, 2011 Share Posted January 10, 2011 So i have my css 65 up and running for about 1 week now, and so far i am impressed. Out of the box i was amazed at how big it was and how thick the plastic was. It really felt like good quality materials. The pump is awesome i believe its a maxi jet 1200. Im not sure but it really is pretty powerful for the skimmer, which is why they give you a flow adjustment valve. When i put it on i did not rinse it like an idiot because i was to excited. So the first few days were a little bit picky on what it skimmed. It skimmer about 2 days straight, then i dropped a piece of shrimp in the sump.(dont ask how). So the bubble tower that was made popped and it started over in a few hours. Heres the skimmate after first 2 days. The whole setup on my sump So i did my first water change today since i added the skimmer and all i can say is i'm very impressed. After all was don e i filled my tank and sump back up with fresh water and plugged the skimmer back in. Instantly it went back to skimming like it was the day before. In the first few days if i added top off water it would stop making the bubble tower, or when ever i add food. I will updating more and more on this skimmer as i progress with it. So far i am very happy with it and for 100 bucks. Cmon.... Link to comment
