Comments: 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.

Comments: 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).

Comments: 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".

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: I purchased a Curve 5 because it was recommended by Precision Marine, manufacturers of the sump I purchased from Marine Depot. I could not be happier. The Curve 5 takes up little space, it's easy to adjust, and skims far better than any other skimmer I've owned (AquaC and ReefOctopus). And, as advertised, it worked almost as soon as I hooked it up. I'm using it on a 75 gallon with a moderate bioload and every 2-3 days I have to rid the collection cup of thick, foul-smelling skimmate. The pump works fine, but it can be replaced (when the time comes) with a Sicce. The instructions aren't the best and if you don't know much about skimmers you might have to consult youtube or other online source about assembly. But that's a minor quibble about a good skimmer that comes at an attractive price.

Comments: This was in my tank for less than an hour and it was already pulling out some nasty stuff. Great skimmer! Easy to assemble and dial in. Can't say enough good things about this skimmer.
