Comments: its difficult to get the pumps to work properly with out cavitation, hopefully the orig media will help. the skimmer kit did work wonders even though it sounds expensive $25 for a piece of plastic. Love the red sea max tank though. beautiful system. skimmer work wonderful with the upgrade kit, very easy to a just water level for proper skimming without cavitation.
