great but weired.

It's a good skimmer but it's way to big. I used to only buy eshopps products but heard this was good. Great price. The fine adjustments worked well until I moved the pump just a little to change the filter material. Now the fine a adjustments are fully on or fully closed. Been doing this along time never seen one so picky. I would recommend that you use the tube provided with the skimmer to run into larger container for the nasty stuff.

Good skimmer

This is a great skimmer, but it is geared more for a sump then a hang on the back at least if you want a lid on your tank. I had to refit my lid to accommodate the return of this skimmer to this 65 Tall tank which has a two inch opening in the back. I do have a Refugium, but my space below my tank is severely limited. Coralife's did not state what opening was needed to accommodate this return However it is easy to operate and is skimming like a real champ. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is the lack of that information on the return.

Good Skimmer

Simple to setup, There is NO PLACE for this thing to leak not like the first skimmer (different product) that I ordered. Yuck in the cup in less than 6 hours. I would buy this product again if the need came about.

Awesome!

Best skimmer I've ever had. Doesn't leak, isn't loud and cleans so much out of my tank. Worth the money

Poor design

Coralife must be proud of their products to charge what they do . Being a well known leader in the industry you would think they would make a better product for what they charge. The break in period is lengthy and is tedious, don't dare to turn it off ,it's not easy to set the flow again . Parts constantly break and its a wait to get parts from coralife. I had a instant ocean that was way better,don't waste your money on this product,to many parts To go bad . I purchased a bubble magus and waiting for it to arrive will comment on it when's I get it.

Cleaner water

I thought my water was clean until I installed my new coralife super skimmer. I use it as a hang on skimmer on my sump. Started working instantly no work in time. Would recommend.

Not bad for price

This really is not a bad skimmer. Just keep the water level consistent and it can pull out some gunk. If you can't afford something more expensive then i would recommend it.

Same old thing

Used the original version of the 65 for almost a year with six months or more as a HOB. It leaked, took up a lot of tank space and at best, produced a skimate the color of tea, and continually pumped micro bubbles back into the tank. Very unpredictable. If I dared to let the collection cup fill to half, I would come home or wake up to find it over flowed. It worked much better in the sump, but still never pulled out the "coffee" looking gunk. Tried this 2nd. Gen version to find out its worse. Cheap material, jagged edges and all the original issues. Out of the box, I had issues. CoraLife has managed to make a poor product worse no doubt by trying to save themselves money in manufacture. Listen to Burto, stay away!

Great!

I don't know why some of the people here have given this product such bad reviews, it performs perfect for me! I have it on a 30 gallon and it pulls out some dark nasty gunk! I would not put this on a tank bigger than 40 gallons, but thats just my opinion. During the initial break-in you do have to watch out and make sure you don't have it dialed all the way up or you may have water spill, but thats like most skimmers. I love that it has such a big collection cup too, and in my case it doesn't produce any micro bubbles, I would defintely buy this product again, it works great!
