Smile FLuval spec DIY skimmer

Hey guys,

I thought i'll share my DYI skimmer that im using with my Fluval spec. I always had issues removing the protein film over the surface. This pretty much fixed the problem.

You could use a Plexiglass Acrylic Sheet, cut the right dimension, just enough long to allow some space on the side to let the water flow. Also a plastic sheet could also work.
