Find a better one, killed tank

At the time I bought this, it was basically the only skimmer that would work on my 29 biocube...with a bit of modification. Other reviews are right that it sucks water into the air intake easily on the BC, and it tends to fill the cup too quick even after years of "dialing in." After about three years of mediocre work, it finally broke down, overheated, smoked, cooked my tank and made some kind of toxic, black, nasty smelling residue. 24 hours later my house still stinks like burned plastic and sulfur. I'm so disappointed. I don't think any corals will survive - fish and inverts are dead already. I gave it 2 stars because it "worked" for three years without any maintenance - my mistake. Sigh. ...starting over. I'm going to try the Hydor slim skim nano.

Skimmer

It is skimming something, but it is too hard to reduce micro bubbles. I wish had brought the Aqua C Remora.

Good for the price...

The skimmer itself works great however the mount options are terrible. The suction cups are undersized and should be glued one, and the hanging bracket is too short to use in a sump. Everytime you have to clean the cup you have to reset the whole skimmer and readjust it because the suctions cups are weak and fall off. they really should use a heavy duty magnet like the new aquamaxx nano reactor.

Micro bubbles everywhere

The skimmer is nice and looks to be well made and quite. If you can only get rid of the micro bubbles that never stop coming out. I've had it running for 2 weeks now and no results in the collection cup, the micro bubbles just keep coming. Save your money and get a better skimmer.

Great nano skimmer

Great nano skimmer! It produces decent skimmate and fits perfectly in chamber 1 of my biocube.

Won't stay in place

This skimmer works, it's a bit loud, but the biggest issue I have is it won't stay in place. The suction feet on the back are useless and will not hold the unit in place. The plastic parts that come with the unit to attach it to the side of the tank are flimsy and don't hold it firmly in place. Since it needs to sit a certain height above the water I've been unable to successfully use this in my tank since it keeps sinking down and falling in the tank.

It works after modding it

Placed this skimmer in the first chamber of our 29 Biocube after trimming the hood to make room for the bracket. I was able to get the skimmer to work after doing the airline mod "found on YouTube " the skimmer has been in operation for three days and is starting to pull dark ski mate. Overall I'm happy with it.

My new skimmer

This mini skimmer works very well. Took me a few days to get it where I want it. Overall I'm very satisfied with how well it works. I'm using it in a refugium I built myself with limited space so for how small this skimmer is, it has surpassed my expectations.
