Re: [APD] Fluval surface skimmer

When using a surface skimmer, whether home-made or a commercially available unit, very little flow is required through the skimmer if your primary objective is to prevent the build up of surface film.

The worst aspect of almost any skimmer is the sometimes frequent need to clear away debris that collects at the inlet. Otoh, that's a very simple and easy maintenance job.

It works fine. I don't see any reason why it couldn't be used on any 
canister filter. It has an adjustment so that you can adjust for 
different flow rates.
