After I set it up and tested it, I decided to take pictures after I knew that it was going to work. Let me tell you, I think its the best thing I have made to date.

Skims like a dream.

Ok on with the pics....

Matt,
  It looks pretty damn impressive.   What type of pump are you using to run your skimmer? :shock:

I would not even try to make a hang on the back one. They are big.

Right at about $70 in materials not including pump.
If I had all the materials on hand it would take 3 hours in labor. 2 days in waiting time.
