skimmer air silencer:

 

get an old 35 mm film cannister and drill two small airline holes at either end.

fill cannister with filter floss and place it in-line on the air intake hose to the skimmer (like a petrol filter on a car)

periodically replace the filter floss as it will get very dirty over time....especially if you smoke.

Rowaphos without a reactor , if you dump it in a chamber it doesn't work too good , I rinse it in salted water to get all the colour out then strapped the bag to the outlet of the skimmer ,, job done 0 phosphate
