    I picked up this beast from Mark last Sat.
    SWC Mini-S, there is nothing mini about this beast.
    I am breaking in this skimmer right now with old tank water from my 33 gallon cube.
    BTW, the skimmer is sitting in the 20 long right now.


    Here is a quick vid clip of Mini-S in action.

    Hey Ashton,

    I just started with the DIY stand today. Hopefully it will turn out good.
    Did you go see that 90 gal tank yet?

    Hey Mark,

    I just threw in a cup of nasty skimmate in the tank and seems like the skimmmer is lot quieter now.

    I also received 50LB of dry Key Largo Rocks form Marco Rocks. Pretty awesome stuff.
    I'm going to give them vinegar bath and put them togeather with acrylic rods and aquamend.

    FYI... Aquamend isn't around anymore. I contacted the company and they said it has been replaced by Water Weld and it's available at Home Depot. I just didn't want you to have to run all over the Puget Sound area looking for Aquamend like we did. This looks like it will be a sweet build. We got the Marco Rocks too. Great textures and shapes.
