Manufacturer Info

CPR Aquatic Aquarium Supplies
In Arcata, located in Northern California, the sea is a way of life. From the advanced Marine Biology department at Humboldt State University, just up the hill from CPR’s headquarters, to Humboldt Bay, about a mile west, CPR is nestled in a perfect environment to develop equipment for marine aquariums. CPR was started in a small garage in 1987 to produce biological filters for local aquarists. People who used CPR filters were impressed by the high quality and affordable prices. Word spread and the company grew. Since then, CPR has expanded to a 10,000 sq. ft. production facility and has developed many innovative products over the years. CPR is incorporating new ideas and technologies all the time. Their goal is to allow aquarists to place the highest performing products in their tanks at reasonable prices.

Very quiet and SKIMS!

Comments: I have owned an AquaC Remora, Bak-Pak and Bak-Pak 2. In comparison this is by far the quietest HOB skimmer of the four I have ever owned. After about a 4 day break in it quieted down even more and started skimming! At first a few micro-bubbles but that was controlled by limiting flow with the input pump a nice feature you can't do with the others allowing water to stay loneg in the seperation chamber. After about a month It's pulling out a cup a week on a 28 gallon!

Decent Skimmer But Noisy

Comments: I had my AeroForce skimmer for about 9 months now on my 30g reef. It does what it built to do and pulls out tons of brown junk from the water. I usually have to empty the cup twice a week. Now for the bad side of this skimmer. The thing gets very noisy at times. My tank is located in my foyer which is about 25 ft. from where I usually sit to watch TV in my living room. I can hear it pretty loud most of the time. Also the Hydor Pico Evolution 400 power-head used to fill the skimmer usually starts making load screeching noises once a week. A few times now it has even stops working all together. Usually if I tap on it, it starts working again or stops making noise but sometimes I have to take it apart to get it working correctly again. I have to also say that CPR support isn't very good. I contacted them about this problem and two weeks later they got back to me and basicly just said to "clean it". I replied back saying I clean it weekly and four weeks later I have still yet to get a responds from them. So over all the skimmer works but I wouldn't buy it again if I had to do it over.

Comments: I bought this skimmer for my 55 gallon saltwater set up and I really love it. I works very well and pulls so much waste from the aquarium. Reading the negative reviews, I realize whoever wrote them are not using them correctly. It takes some adjusting but when you get it right, this skimmer will perform very well....

Comments: Ownership: 3 Months Design: Couple design flaws but nothing major, Its quiet, Except the return depending on tank height, but I just put some filter floss under where the water crashes down and its near silent now. As stated above, clear is not the color of choice since it does get algae build up within two weeks for me (and I have it in a sump of a 28G Nano Cube)Only other thing is since the cup moves up and down it doesnt create a perfect seal allowing some of the bubbles to rise up between the wall of the skimmer and the collection up instead of going in the cup. Skimmate: Cant seem to get anything dark out of it, but in the skimmers defense I have ran a tank with SPS for 2 yrs without ever needing a skimmer, I change 4 gal weekly in a low stocked 28 gal tank. Its always light green, no matter how slow/fast the pump is moving water through or high/low the cup is. It will either collect no foam, or the foam will be like green tea. I used a Tunze 9002 in the sump area a year ago and it pulled much thicker skimmate then this, But for a HOB its probably the best you can find next to a deltec. Overall: 6/10 - Works as advertised, not as well as others, but for the price I expected it to pull a little more, I would call this a $120 dollar skimmer, so if you can get it for that price your doing ok. If I had to do it again, id probably spend the extra cash on a deltec. If you cant afford it, this skimmer will still work for you

Comments: Works pretty good. Not terribly quiet, but seems quieter than the Remora. I like the two pumps, and turn off the air pump for the first half of the night to quiet it down and lessen plankton removal. Then, about 3AM it goes back on for aeration mostly.... All the while, the circulation pump keeps going to keep any stagnation from occurring.

Easy assembly, NOISY

Comments: Not sure this thing works...the old HOB unit I removed was dirty, but it did collect stuff in the cup. Nothing so far, with this one. It was easy to assemble, even though the instructions left MUCH to be desired. The pump is not connected to the plate, as the instructions state...which may be why it so LOUD. I probably need to follow up and see if it's defective/broken. After a week, nothing has been collected. Lots of little bubbles, some slightly foamy (but clear) bubbles rising up partway into the funnel...but nothing makes it into the collection box. Green algae growing inside the funnel already. My aquarium is nowhere near a window, so it must be from the aquarium lighting. Overall, it looks good...but doesn't seem to be doing any collecting.

Comments: I can't begin to express how well this skimmer works. I've tried three other style of hang on skimmer and this is works 10x better than any others. Sure, the price is a bit steep, but once you set it up you won't regret it.

Comments: I have been running one for about two weeks now. It pulls out much more skimmate than my old CPR Bak-Pak 2. The hydor aero 400 is much quiter than any venturi pump I have used. Basically no micro-bubbles from the time it was first plugged in. Within a week there were no micro-bubbles. The hydor 200 intake pump is perfectly matched for this skimmer. Does not push water through the body to quickly like the acella pumps on the bak-paks. There are only two downfalls of this skimmer. The first is that the reaction chamber of the skimmer does not lock in to the body of the skimmer. Once water is in the chamber it wont go anywhere anyway. The other problem is that they used clear acrylic on the front and intake of the skimmer. This will cause algae to build up and need constant cleaning. I have used this as a HOB skimmer and in sump skimmer. It works flawlessly in both applications.
