DIY protein skimmer bubble diffuser
got tired of microbubbles everywhere in the reef everytime I cleaned out the skimmer so I made a simple bubble diffuser for the Coralife SS220. can be adapted to fit any skimmer I suppose. just some pvc and a sponge filter or prefilter sponges work aswell.
there is a breather hole atop the orange cap to deaden the sound and release bubbles. built it two different ways before I found the one that fit best. been keeping up a mildly wet skim for a bit now. try to empty the cup everyday or two. these skimmers are notorious for constantly needing dialing-in. keeping a constant water level seems key. I'm going to be modding again in the near future since I have 2 of these to play with.
