    In my case, i only use it in tanks which have particularly noticeable oil film on the water surface (which incidentally is usually my spare holding tank which is often overloaded with livestock that are in transition between tanks, high bio-load = higher feeding + waste = thicker oil film).

    Though even with thicker oil film to handle, i usually only clean the skimmer's sponge trap once a week (at the same time as i do the weekly water change), i guess oil film doesn't clog up the sponge trap as much as actual leaves and debris.

    The good thing about the OF is the ease of cleaning/accessing the skimmer sponge. Very very easily accessible so I kind off do it once 3-4 days or during WC.

    Thanks for all the advice. Will get one to try. Cleaning will b a problem for me as I have braces on all 4 sides of my tank. Have to pull out the suction cup to service...

    Hi...

    Sorry to revive this thread...

    May i know if there is an optimal positioning of the skimmer for best results? Like beside or opposite of the inflow or outflow?

    I will place the skimmer where the skimmer outflow will direct at dead spots. Usually it's the area under the lily pipe.

    I place mine diagonally across the lily pipe output. Seems to aid the flow for me. Lily pipe out towards skimmer....it suck the flow towards it.....then blow out below and seems to me moving to my inlet pipe.
