Best Bang for Your Buck

Comments: I bought this skimmer in a rush because I dropped my $350 AquaC EV 180 while cleaning and shattered the acrylic body. I loved my AquaC, but was not able to pay that price to replace it on such short notice. I did as much research as I could before finally choosing the Bubble Magus Curve 5. To say I have been impressed would be an understatement. The Bubble Magus performs just as well as the AquaC. It's quieter and fits better in my sump. Set up was easy and it only took just over 24 hours to break in. I'm rating 4 1/2 because it just doesn't "feel" as heavy duty as the AquaC, but that's probably just me being overly critical. I don't know if I've ever written a 5 star review.

Comments: It's still early on, but I'm really loving this skimmer. The build quality gets an A+, the noise level is barley there, and there are no micro bubbles leaking out into the sump. The design is very nice, solid and compact. I just plopped it in the tank just a few days ago and I'm already getting a nice tea colored skimmate. This skimmer makes my old skimmer look like trash! I would absolutely recommend this. (I'm using the Curve5 for a ~45 gal system)

Comments: I have had my curve 9 for over 2 months now. While the break in process was lengthy Im confident it is over. It is sitting in a tideline 36"sump under my 210 reef tank. I occasionally get random events where this skimmer overflows and on 2 occasions has flooded my home. 9/10 days this skimmer runs normal but it is the once in a while occasion that is overflows. One thing to note is that this is not an acrylic skimmer body but molded plastic. I regret making this purchase. I have pulled my curve 9 and gone back to my reef octopus.

Curve 7

Comments: After a day of running the Curve 7 in a vinegar bath solution, I set it up in my 75 gallon tank's sump. The tank has been cycling for a month now and it started pulling detritus out after a couple hours. Now it's a matter of dialing it in to get the right type of skimmate. Directions are terrible and need a serious overhaul, not sure why they are so bad for a company based in Cali. It's not difficult to figure out though. I think it's cool that the pump can be configured in a couple ways and that you can easily clean the whole unit because it can be taken apart. There's nothing that I can see cracking or rusting too which is great. The Skimmer cup is as big as my 3.5 year olds head!!! The Curve 7 is super quiet and my micro bubble issue from my old aqua c ev 180 is gone.

Comments: Is a beast, I replaced my three gallons refugium for this skimmer, this thing started skimming since the first day that I set it up, now its been about three weeks and is making a really green dark skim, its well build, easy to set up and quiet.

Comments: Bought it Wednesday and I received this protein skimmer Thursday (today). Installed it and immediately skimming like crazy! I love this thing! My only problem is that the instructions on how to put this contraption together is not that easy or clear to understand. But once working, it will clean your tank like it should be. FIVE Stars!

Comments: I bought the Curve 5 and couldn't be more pleased with it. Easy to assemble and adjust. Once it broke in, it pulls out good stuff. I did have a small problem with the pump. I could only get it work outside of the water. If it was submerged it wouldn't fire up. I contacted the local distributor Seaside Aquatics and they were great. Tested the pump for me and replaced it no questions asked. You're bound to run into problems every now and then, the key to great service is how you handle those issues and these guys do it right.
