Mine was $26, I already had a pump so it is a basic venturi and the pump is over sized for it, perfect!

You either get a pin wheel or similar that chops up the bubbles, but you loose pressure with them, you over pressurise a venturi and keep the pumps impellor area free of rubbish and you then have a winner.

Tuning, lol, slide up, slide up, oops a bit down, perfectly tuned!

Also looking at replacing the aqua one skimmer on my 120. Has anyone got anything good or bad to say about marine sources skimmers? I was looking at a RDC 250. looks the part and soo cheap at only $119

Just because it looks good..... doesnt make it a good skimmer unfortunately.

I would stick with the more well known brands deltec, nyos and tunze are 3 examples.

Better a second hand beast than a new lemon.

Life is too short to waste on bad skimmers imho.

I totally agree donny but it's hard to find those 3 brands second hand I looked and wasn't going to wait haha
