    Just looking at the density of the foam in the new body I'd say that body is pretty well matched up for the Tunze pump. Do you have it substantially dialed back? I'd be curious to have you borrow our air flow meter sometime and see home many l/m of air intake you're getting there.

    Looks like a big difference! It would be interesting to know the l/m difference between the two.

    I agree I think it's a great match up. I have it dialed back a little bit, but way less than when I had it running on the old skimmer body. I'll check with you next time I'm in the shop to see about borrowing the air flow meter. Thank you for all of your help.

    The skimmer is doing a great job. As of a few weeks ago the nitrate had dropped from 100 ppm to ~30 ppm. The LPS are all looking much better.

    I also picked up a used Tunze recirculating pump (thank you @tazzy695 ). I'm still in the planning phase for the plumbing but hope to have it up and running soon. The Tunze will replace a MJ1200, which is pitifully underpowered for this tank.

    Lastly, I installed the DIY LED light from the pico I was running as the fuge light. The macro seems to appreciate the upgrade.

    Yes. Yes, it is. Looking back this thread is photo anemic. I will try to do better.

    I have been working on a few small projects/improvements. The first one is a probe mount for the DA temp probe...
    To make it I used a two pieces of scrap acrylic, drilled two holes with a paddle bit, and superglued them together. I'm using the Tunze Osmolator magnet to hold it in place.IMG 5685 - Tom@HaslettMI's 75 gallon mixed reef

    Prior to this the temp probe was just hanging loose in the sump.

    A second project had to do with hiding the output of my Tunze Osmolator. Here's a before picture...

    and and after...

    and it's possible because of this...

    Happy Reefing,
