I have an older sea clone with a maxi jet 1000. it is kind of crappy. Then again i am not using it at the moment . Maybe with a few mods. it will work halfway decent Good luck

I hate to break the bad news Sammy but that is one of the worst skimmers you can get. You may want to look around in the DIY forum for some mods to help it perform better.
