Hi, does anybody know of any good mods I can do on my Sea clone 100 protein skimmer for improved performance? I understand that this is not the best skimmer, but until I get my reef octopus, I have to deal with it.
sorry for not responding earlier....anyway the first is a better pump like an MJ1200 with a venturi and air valve to control the air flow. I also cut, with a dremel, the inner tube down to about 2"s this provides more contact time...just those should help alot....more water, more air and longer contact time. I also used a large washer around the collection cup to provide a tighter seal ..this seems to help with a better tornado effect in the chamber....there are a few more...just haven't done them in many years....you can do a search in the do-it yourself forum on RC..lotsa of info there.
Yeah I saw alot of mods on google but they were just way too complicated and there was no point in doing all that work...I just wanna make some few improvements till I get my reef octopus...I'll be posting more info about my sump in a little bit...Thanks though.
