    Talking My New MONSTER!!!

    Well made my way over to OakVille Reef Gallery today!..

    and came home with this puppy!.. Still dont konw what im going to do with it? Where im going to put it and how im going to run it.. I have a 2200 GPH Pound pump.. and both a Kent Venturi and a Becket.. not sure witch one im going to use Its all fitted for Airdriven.. so that just adds more bubbles!!

    So here we go.. She is 46 inches tall...





    and she is 6 inches wide



    Im thinking i finally have a skimmer for my little old 100g..

    Now that's what we call a SKIMMER!!!!!! ... Where you going to hide that puppy Toooloud? Pump size? GGG... do they make a pump big enough? Kidding .. What dose the manufacture suggest? If no suggestion is made send them a e-mail so this baby will work to it's full potential.

    its a custom made job... Picked it up used from the LFS..And they have no clue.. lol,

    Im going to be using a Venturi.. as well as its setup to use 2 airstones.. So i will be full of bubbles.. So i guess if i use the airstones as well.. really does not matter on the GPH.. i got a pump here that will do around 600 GPH.. will try it and see what happeneds

    Talking mikey

    got ya beat dude! just plumbed my LIFEREEF V3-72''! today Thats right, 72 freaking inches high and running like a charm. I bought this used from DICK182 over at RC but hes from TO area.[got to get him to come on over to AC]. I will post pics tomorrow. I'm using a VELOCITY T4 pump I bought here from AC and the pump rocks! silent, adds maybe 1 degree if that. I'm a happy camper.

    Allright so i have her running

    Just waiting now to see if she produces foam!.. the skimmer is being drvien ( Underdriven ) by a Little Giant Insump pump around 800GPH with a Kent Venturi ( 1/2 inch ) .. and then i am using the Duel Airstone unit that was installed as well..

    So far she is looking really nice!.. Really milky!.. Hoping it will start to produce some foam!
