1x Bubble magus c3.5 skimmer £50
I’m just about to pick up a curve 7 I’ve been told that this is quite normal for all new skimmers and will break in, and most people say this BM will fill the cup in overtime for the first week or two. Keep me posted on how it breaks in

Also probably should start a new thread for this but how do you guys rate miracle mud ? I want to keep SPS in this tank and suffered slightly high nitrates and phosphates in my old tank, so want to set this one up for good export from the get go. Going to oversize skimmer slightly with the curve 7, get a fiuge with cheato and maybe miracle mud, with the hope of not exporting with liquid carbon again

Thanks both - I’ve had real issues with the pump on my Deltec, it’s a hob sc300 and on it’s third pump, and others I’ve spoken too have mentioned the same thing? That’s the only reason really for not going deltec again.

I would not clean at all, it looks fine. The foam does not absorb; it is closed-cell. Any black cloth will work, halfway over the lights, but you can try no cloth and see how it goes.
They’re likely coming from a slight gap where the white Venturi fits through the clear cone of the skimmer.
New skimmers will settle down, so just sit it out, you might be able to skim a bit wetter which will lift the whole column of fizz in the skimmer higher a couple inches when it’s bedded in. Right now skimming wetter will just flood the cup every ten mins.
Are the micro bubbles normal that are just above the intake where the air line connects. The skimmer is new.
It looks like they are coming from where the tubing attaches

Thank you, would it be suitable to do both methods as stated by yourself?
Yes I got it used condition and plan to clean it.
Can the foam/outside be cleaned this method also or would it absorb the chemicals and re release them?
Finally where can I get the black cloth you mention as I haven’t got this part.
