I'll start, this is a daily production of the G3 on the 125.

Let's see how others skimmers are working. Smile

Very nice!!! The Remora is still one of my favorite set it and forget it skimmers. If you have the MaxiJet 1200 and have easy access to a Mag3, try the Mag...you will be amazed at the difference a stronger pump makes.

Yeah I use a Maxijet 1200 for the skimmer and I have actually been thinking about upgrading the pump. I have heard mixed opinions on Mags, but what is your opinion on the durability, power, and overall performance of Mag-Drive pumps?

the 1200 actually puts out more water volume but no where near the pressure. The Remora uses a spray injection and the added pressure makes all the difference. I have used and own several Mags and have zero failure rate.

I've had my skimmer running for about 4 days now its a PRIZIM hang-on skimmer the one rated for tanks up to 400Lts my tank is 120Lts
and I have 1 common english shrimp 3" and one common english blenny 4"
and about 6kgs of live rock a biolife trickle filter, fluval 3+ and a fluval 2+
my the liquid in the skimmer is a nasty green colour but the foam is white, is the foam white because of the low stocking level???
cheers james

This is a few days worth from my Coralife 125 on my 56 gallon. The pump needs a good cleaning, however, so I don't know if it's as efficient as it could be.
