Anyone else found any decent DIY skimmers or ways of skimming a nano tank? I'm thinking of starting a nano tank and I want to have a cheap option for skimming...

Sun Tea Jar Auto Top Off

Here's my auto top off with a sun tea jar. It's a pressure-regulated, gravity-driven setup for about $10. No batteries, pumps, or float switches and it mantains your water level automatically. Somewhat like the old Nurce top off.

thanks nano cube boy!!!

I did pretty much the same thing nano cube boy did to create a refugium in a nano cube.
first, i cut off the vinyl off the back of the second chamber

then, I installed a light

the light is a little big but it still works

lots of room for my chaeto to grow

top of chamber with just the LR pieces, since then I have added a clump of chaeto

Wet skimming away!

COOL—OUT

Hey,

Is anyone having luck keeping the RSM cool without a chiller? Has anyone changed out the fans? What models?

Thanks,

m

amoryodio, do ever clean the five window inside? As you can see I have the light and I wonder can I should change the bulb? I know from time to time the spectrum runs out, but I'm not if it's apply to fuge light as well

This link appears to be broken. I'd be really interested in any way of improving these scrapers, because they are indeed somewhat crappy. Anyone know where this modification was posted?
