I found this and various othe stuff at the dump (I know my wife told me not to get stuff from the dump) a while ago anyway.

Not well from the looks of it! :D

Seriously, from what I can see in the picture, it appears to be an air operated protein skimmer. Skimmers don't work well in fresh water, and that model is an outdated DIY deal. The air driven models are not nearly as efficient as the newer motor driven models.

Are you sure that's a protein skimmer and not some huge fancy DIY water bong? :rofl2:
