    It looks like a baby skimmer, but then I see it's 20" tall! Now there's some room to skim

    We haven't officially tested the skimmer yet, but we did unbox one to shoot photos and it sure is pretty!

    What does the black arrow on the neck tell you?

    I would test this out. :)

    I think that adjusts the water level, since it's a HOB.

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for your inquiry. The black arrow indicates how much the outlet is opened or closed. It is very helpful when adjusting the water level inside the skimmer: to achieve a wetter or drier skimmate.

    The ConeS HOB is the well-reviewed ConeS CO-1 skimmer in a box: with the same great Sicce pump, same "rocketship" diffusers, same hybrid cone body. We would expect it to have the same performance :D
