    Anyone have a EV400 Skimmer

    If anyone is currently using an EV400 skimmer I would like to know how tall the mixing box is. It's the only spec I can not find about the size of the unit.

    Thanks Bvoss. I was having some trouble determining the height of the mixing box and it was the only spec not listed for the unit. Are you happy with this item? Is it doing a good job with minimum fiddling?

    Actually I have to say they require more fiddling than I like. I was using an ASM. I had no idea how easy that was until I tried the AquaC.

    That's interesting. I use a AquaC Remora Pro. There is nothing to fiddle with except for the height of the collection cup. Can you describe to me what has to be fiddled with?

    The skimmer is very sensitive to water height and the airflow. You really have to fiddle with it to get the bubble size right and get a reasonably dry foam. Any changes to the water chemistry have a big effect. Feedings shut it down for a couple hours and if I frag anything (just with super glue) it turns into a water pump and I have to dial it way back.

    It is a very well made skimmer and it does a good job. I was just surprised at how much attention it takes.
