Outstanding

I am using this on my 120 gallon reef tank with a Trigger Systems Ruby Sump 36 inch system and it fits and works perfectly. Was a replacement for a Reef Octopus skimmer. This skimmer is easier to clean and maintain.Assembly is a cinch. The break-in period was nearly instantaneous.Great Buy

Worked for less than a year

I bought is as a backup for my Omega, but e motor gave out after a years usage. Cleaning and reassembly didn't help. I guess at this price point that's to be expected. It did work well however.

So Far, So Good

Received my Bubble Magus Curve 7 skimmer today. The instructions that accompany the product are truly incompressible and completely useless. Obviously not even a scintilla of interest on mfr’s part in providing English language instructions. I mean what would it cost them to pay someone to translate a page of instructions into even a semblance of comprehensible English? But I found a helpful video on U-Tube that set me straight. Had some issues at first because the bottom plate of the skimmer on which the pump is mounted was installed backwards by mfr. Figured that one out by trial and error, got the thing assembled, put it in sump with a 10” water level, which seemed to fit mfr’s instructions that water Level should be between 9.5" and 11," and instant overflow, even with intake water flow set at minimum. After several hours of no change, I reinstalled the 2” platform I had been using with prior skimmer (a glass casserole dish), and zuts alors, it almost immediately started to work. At 8,” I immediately got thick foam building into neck of skimmer, coating neck with crud. I am gradually increasing water flow and, hours after installing the skimmer, I’m getting a smattering of nice dark skimmate collecting in cup. So far a winner. What is more, the package contained all the parts needed to make it work. Which is more than I can say for the RO skimmer I initially ordered which was missing several essential parts.

Bubble Magus Curve 7

Very nicely designed protein skimmer. The skimmer cup lid has a nice imprint circle on top to allow easy handling. The performance is very good and I would recommended for medium loaded 120 gallon tanks. Skimmate was thick and nice after break in period which was less than a day. The pump is built very nice and the skimmer is easy to take apart. The output turn is simple and easy and I would definitely recommend this skimmer for medium size tanks (75-120).

Workhorse skimmer

The Curve 5 was my "backup" skimmer to my CAD skimmer. Long story short, the CAD skimmer failed and the Curve 5 went in and never came out. Generates a ton of bubbles. Great skimmate. Bought another Curve 5 as my new "backup".

Curve 5

This skimmer produces right out of the box with excellent foam production. Maintenance is reasonably easy for a small footprint type skimmer. Like most of the modern skimmers, there is no protection of the venturi inlet from sump surfing fishes. Mine ate a blenny on the second day I had it. Now I have a sponge prefilter rigged to prevent this from happening. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.

Curve Skimmer

Product was easy to get started, runs quietly, and is easy to clean. It has been running for about 4 weeks and I am pleased.

Curve 7

Purchased skimmer to replace a Eshoops skimmer in a new rimless build . Upon first opening of the packaging i was very impressed with the craftsmanship of the skimmer. I cleaned and installed the skimmer in the sump and did some adjustments, after the 2 day in the sump the skimmer had pulled out a very thick waste. The collection cup removal is the easiest that i have had on any skimmer and seals great i am very happy with my purchase and the service shipping at Marine Depot is second to none. In the future when I need another skimmer it will be a bubble Magus.
