    Very old piece of aquarium equipment, HOB Wet-Dry with built-in air pump driven skimmer. Comes with the original Bio-balls and floss media? which you, the lucky recipient, can recycle and get some macro algae in there, few pieces of rock and Voila! (is it written correctly?) your own HOB filter-sump-refugium.

    Pick up in SF late afternoons.

    Post your interest here. Aquarium FS 001.jpg

    Wow that thing hangs off the back of a tank? I would think it would be a lot of weight. Is it siphon driven? Or a pump that moves water back and forth?

    If euod does not pick it up, I'm also interested. Although I'm planning to modify it to be an algae turf scrubber.

    I had one long ago hanging off the 46G system at home, needed some refuge for tiny critters to grow and some macro; it does get the flow via siphon then at the other end, a small pump returns the water back to the main system.

    Dimensions 21x16x4 found an air pump to "power" the skimmer but no air stones, also some tubing and a return pump from an old JBJ Nano to go with the system.

    Pending confirmation from euod if no-no, them will move to the next post-er...

    xcaret, I just realized that the HoB is too large for the tank I had in mind.
    Sorry for any inconvenience,

    Done deal but Noe Valley is not an option any more.
    I'll get in touch...
