New Skimmer will be here on Wednesday, will likely also order my LEDs then as well. :) Went with a Super Reef Octopus 3000 with the Bubble Blaster pump. IMO, there isn't a better skimmer for the money.

Beast is good, skimmer-wise. What tank size is that skimmer rated for?

Beastly skimmers are awesome lol can we get a pic of the monster?55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013
Check out the journal to follow my 55g SW tank

Good purchase on the reef octopus skimmer. We have a reef octopus 150 on our 75 (rated for 150 gallons and without the bubble blaster) and it works awesome

My personal opinion on the Bubble Blaster pump is that I wouldn't get a skimmer without one. LOL With those pumps, the skimmer is good for exactly what they rate it for.

Got the contorller for my LED's paid for today. It is a boostLED LED controller with a Arduino board. Can't wait to get this and start playing with it. The beauty of the Arduino board is that is open source and thus it can be programmed at home. :) Looks like I'm going to have fun programming some sunrise and sunset settings. I may even play around and get some cloud cover, moon phases. :) Once the LEDs are installed, the coral stock in this tank is going to completely change.
