    Just signed on for the first time and wanted to say hi to everyone. I guess I'll tell everyone about myself,I've been keeping fish on and off for 15-20yrs and started my first saltwater tank about 2 years ago. I currently have a 55g mixed reef. I am like a mad scientist when it comes to diy builds, i just finished my diy skimmer. I am getting ready to put together a sulphur denitrifier next, and I'm always tinkering with diy lr.


    heres a pic of the skimmer I just built this was a test fit of all the parts

    Welcome to the forum. The DIY skimmer looks very interesting. Have you had a chance to test it out yet ?
