OK my BK Supermarin 200 has been on the frag tank for 4 weeks now. Every Saturday I empty the cup and clean it.
Heres what I get weekly.
I am very happy with this, it was well worth the money and shows why a great skimmer is so important in a reef tank.

Nice. What's the bioload besides the coral? I know you said you had a lawnmower blenny in there, right?

Reefkoi

yep, I have;
1 small lawnmower blenny
1 small 6 line wrasse
1 small yellow tang

pretty low load, I also have snails and crabs down in the bottom area.

I guess its pulling stuff off of the Marco rocks, I haven't had the typical brown stringy mess associated with new tanks so maybe this thing is saving me.
Only time will tell.

I know the snails and hermits are freaking nasty pigs. I had them in my pico and the amount of detritus that these animals create is unbelieveable!!!!!I would have to use a turkey baster to clean my rock and that was with 3 astrea snails and 4 hermits.

I hear ya Paul, I always wondered how the hell I had so much detritus in my 10 when I had no fish in there, I figured out it was the few snails I had were pooping it all out.

Snails are like little cows. There is not always a lot of nutrient in algae, so they eat and poop a lot.
