    That is right sir P., the only thing is that to make a 10 min modification to David's skimmer pump took us about 3 Hrs? and a case of Beer? ok maybe 2 cases.

    Aren't videos fun I like the little one in the background giving suggestions on bubble size. lol

    Would this mod work on any of the Euroreef models? Just wondering because i am looking at the RS models for my new tank.

    Great video you two! I am looking forward to the sump one

    From what I understand this mod will work on any needle wheel pump. I am not sure if they were ever able to get it to work on the Coralife Super Skimmers. I just bought my CSS a few months ago, but after seeing the videos of the foam these skimmers produce. I am seriously looking for a ER, ASM or Octopus skimmer.

    Excellent job on the video guys. I have 3 Euro-Reef skimmers, so I am going to attempt this mod on at least one of them. I'll let you know how it goes.

    And I know what you mean about how long these videos take. I made a 12 minute tank tour of my 240. It took about 2 hours to shoot, and about 10 hours to edit. I still had a blast, though.

    Once again - well done!

    Thanks Guys, It is a lot of fun make those Videos.

    We made another one that is about acrylic and that was like 3 days worth of recording and I'm in the process of setting up a New tank, 180g, which will be in wall tank, and we are also recording the progress of the tank, but this project will take at least 6 months to be completed because as part of the setup I need to finish the basement( that was the deal with my "BOSS"), and every steep of the way will be on tape, like a Video log instead of a Photo log.

    Like PSH said, will work on any needle wheel pump.

    Thanks again

    i myself am (...will be...... i have it........ just no system........) running an RS 8.3+ (i think so, its what it looks like on the receipt.

    The + is for the dual sedra 5000's (thaaaaaaats right XD ). So i may turn one into a recirculating pump, and put a mesh wheel on that. Imagine what would happen if bubbles that are already tiny were run throught the mesh????

    Of course i'm a wuss, so ill probably leave it be, dual sedras are good enough for me XD

    if you are not already, i would recommend using a podcatcher like iTunes to download the shows
    details are here
    http://www.talkingreef.com/forums/faq.php

    this way it will download in the background.

    all that said, im currently in the works to get more bandwidth added to the system. expected to be in place next month.

    Excellent video guys! Thank you for taking the time to make it. I just received some mesh mod from a fellow reefer (Thanks BigAl ) and intend to mod my ASM G3's sedra 500 within the week. Thanks for showing how easy it is!

    ....now, if you would please, get to work on a 'recirculating mod' video!!
