- water clarity
This thing is awesome
i purchased a neck cleaner for my octo 200 int. working great so far.
I bought a 12 inch Swabbie and there was no groove cut in the underside of the top which makes it hard to center on top of the cup. Also the acrylic piece under the lid was the same size as my riser tube, I expected it to be a larger diameter. I was able to modify to make it work.
The swabbie has really improved my skimmer performance. It was super easy to install and and setup with my a Apex. I run it for 3 minutes every 6 hours and the skimmer neck is always super clean. It has actually helped improve my nutrient levels due to better skimming. I even had to turn my lighting intensity down a bit due to increased par as a result of improved water clarity. So far, this has been one of the best purchases I’ve made for my tank.
I have 2 of these on 2 different tanks. Its lower profile than the other product from Reef octopus that I tried. Reef octopus ANC would not fit under the stand, this fits with room to spare! Very happy with this!
