Warren, plug the aquabee in the watt meter and let me know what it consumes.
Pierce,
The aquabee consumes 18-19 watts, so pretty much on the money as in what Deltec claims.

It's pretty difficult to get pics of the cup since I have it elevated for the return tube. The cup is about an 1" from the bottom of the stand so you kinda get what I mean. It's also been off for the past two weeks due to my treatment with "No Sick Fish".
I'll get some pics up when it's turned back on and also some from the ER-CS8-2-RC.

I like following this thread.
^BUMP^

Well.......here's some juice from my little ol Remora w/ MJ1200, after 4 days~
Just upgraded to a Euro Reef & eager to see the results.

Pros: No tinkering. Not noisy. Good price. Overall good HOT skimmer for it's size. Went through alot of HOT skimmers & this by far was the best. Would have liked to see how the "Pro" model performs.

Cons: Can't really think of one..:scratchch

David, while I know what skimmer and pump that is, the other readers may not. Give up all the details on the mods you did also.

Dave you got to get better pics than that! Try to get a close up of the foam in the neck + body of the skimmer. I've been wanting to see this thing in action for a while.

Dave, what's happening on the return side of the pump, inside the skimmer?

Is there a tube directing the flow?
