View Full Version : Feedback on my Skimmer Program (CoralVue Varios-4)

02/09/2017, 08:30 AM
I'm using the varios-4 with my apex and would like feedback on my skimmer program.

Objective: turn the skimmer off for feedings, then ramp it back up slowly when it's turned back on. If the unit loses connection I want it to stay at it's programmed high intensity. I cannot run the skimmer at 100% or it will flood the collection cup.

Skimmer is connected to VDM 2
