Well I decided to put the unit on. Its the 50mg/hr model. I can definetly notice an improvement inthe clarity of the water. It looks like theres nothing in there. The skimmer is also pumping out a drier foam. Theres not as much yet but i noticed that the dried skimmate looks like dirt on the collection cup. So far im pretty pleased with the performance. Also noticed an improvement with the polyp extension on the few SPS I have. For the cost of a Wii remote it was worth a shot.

What kind and where did you get it.

Its a Sanders 50mg/hr and I traded a fellow slasher for it.

Are you monitoring your ORP levels?

Is it on a controller?

Nope, and no. I have it set at 25 and let it run all the time.

You need to be careful, you should get a controller and something to monitor your ORP, you could clear your water to fast.

You can zap your whole tank fish and corals carelessly using ozone.

I don't have experience with ozone yet, but <50 mg/hr on a 110 doesn't seem like it should be a problem. I thought people reccomended 3 mg/hr per gallon.
Or do you guys reccomend always using a controller?

Just because Ozone can be dangerous to humans also, it is a good idea to always use a controller.

Im the process of finding one now.

Be careful. I don't want to have to wear sunscreen in your apartment.
