I am in the process of setting up my aquarium and am trying to build close to everything myself, both for the fun and to keep everything fairly cheap. I am about to buy materials for the DIY Skimmer in the "Articles" section. I am just looking for a quick review on this or any other home made skimmers. is a DIY skimmer sufficient or should I just cut out the drop the dough and go buy one??? I'm sure that I am not the only one with this question but wasn't able to find a review on this project in any other thread...so please forgive me and point me in the right direction if there is a separate thread exactly like this one!
