I've had the skimmer for about a week now, already starting to get some decent foam. It's mounted on a normal 5 gallon tank, replacing a whisper-whatever size it was. I threw a piece of filter pad in the last chamber to assist with the start up, which has helped keep down the micro bubbles and assist in filtration. I can probably remove it soon and see how it goes. So far I love this thing, would defiantly recommend.
Bit of advise because it threw me off at the installation, it says to not use the air intake system with the pump. Basically the pump works by just shooting the water through an air chamber which produces the bubbles. So no air tube required just hook it to the optional pump(or your own) and roll.
