    Bio-ball impeller / Needlewheel...

    I know that some of you were interested in DIY skimmers using bio-ball impellers in the pump like Euroreef does with their Needlewheel pumps...

    I found these pics on another site, and figured they'd help.

    he he.. i think i'll upgrade that little seaclose's pump with that
    finally, someone found another use ( besides the coil denitrator ) for those bio-balls

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Nice tang man! I was the one who wanted to do that. I still have it in mind, but wanted to do it on a Mag 9. Is that possible? I found that a maxi wont run dry and my skimmer will be out of sump. Is it possible to fix it to a Mag? Or even a Quiet One?
    Thanks so much for the pics.
