To those of you who have a MAME design skimmer, could you post a picture of how you have it set up? Specifically, how deep into the water do you place it and how high up do you have the bubbles go? I know it is working for me since I have green water that comes out, but sometimes it works awesomely (like very dark green water) and other times it doesn’t work as well. Im under the impression that I need an ATO to get the best use out of it, but until I get one, could you guys share with me the ideal placement for it? Additionally, do you find it to be super wobbly? I’m not sure if there’s a better way to set it up, since the instructions were all in Japanese.
Just looking to get some insight on what way to run my protein skimmer. I have a tunze 9001 running in my fluval m60 (24gallon all in one) which has seemed to be doing pretty good besides the fact that i'm getting some film on the surface in the back of my tank. It's a tight squeeze when i put the surface skimmer attachment on but I am able to get it in there. I'm just curious what you guys would do though. Should I leave it to skim underwater and just remove the film manually, or should I surface skim since that is an option for me. What are the pros and cons for each technique.Thanks
