Comments: Hard working little skimmer. After break in period it is high affective and quiet. It is somewhat loud during break in period ( 2 weeks). So far it is a great addition to my Fusion 20g.

Comments: Set-up was easy. Added this to my 20g nuvo fusion. First 3 days kept bubbles/fizz about half way up the outlet tunnel. Micro bubbles started heavy, after a day or so they pretty much disappeared. Was growing concerned about power/bubble action, it seemed weak. Day 4 I adjusted the height to bring bubbles to the tip of the outlet tunnel. Within minutes I had a very nice foam and had to adjust the bubbles back to mid point of outlet tunnel and rising through out the day. Day 5 good skimate leaving the aquarium(woot)! Also, very quiet for a skimmer. First week 5 stars.

Comments: I like the product and it seems like its working. Only complaint so far is that there is little to no help on directions on how to set it up for the best results. A video on how to adjust the skimmer with the water level would be a huge help to make sure I set it up right. Only available videos for this unit are promotional ones so far. I'm using this in a Solana 34 all in one and it fits like a glove.

Comments: After my first one was cracked, I received the second. The motto couldn't be further from the truth. This product is not unseen, not unheard and definitely has better rivals. After spending two months with this product, I finally gave up. Tried every setting, every level with my ATO, every position,spoke with IM, researched every article on these, just never got a good skim. But the worst part was the microbubbles never went away. They would subside but never went completely away, which made the tank look foggy and unclean. After buying the IM 30L with MANY Innovative Marine accessories, I am already planning a replacement tank and setup. Unfortunate

Comments: Works very well. A bit of a challenging fit in a Nuvo 30L, but does the job and very clean look. Just the right height.

Comments: I have one on my fusion 20 (smallest one) and was so impressed with it I bought another for my nuvo 38 (the midsize). It has to be the quietest skimmer I've ever owned. In my 38 I had to put it in the filter colum for a constant water level because it won't fit in the skimmer colum. Also, I spoke with innovative marine and they said the skimmer should be 1.7in above the water line or right about where the black air line meets the top of the skimmer body. I'm using a magnet to hold it in place.

Comments: I just got my new Ghost protein skimmer for my SR120 aquarium, and is doing its job fine, however after two weeks the pump started to make a horrible noise, that I cannot fix. I will return it back to get a replacement. I don't know why they use cheap pumps for such a great skimmer design?? That's too bad...

Comments: I have the mid size model running in my fusion 40. it does skim, but water level needs to stay at a constant level (auto top off) which i don't have one yet. this seems like a good skimmer, but i think its a little weak for the 40 gallon tank.Looking at the specs after i bought it the desk top and mid size models have the same GPH,with little difference in size.and i am running bio pellets so that's why i think its weak for the 40 tank. I am switching to a HOB that's more popular and rated for 75gallon tanks. As far as micro bubbles in the tank,i didn't have any. and it is a quite skimmer.

Comments: I got my IM ghost skimmer desktop size 3 weeks ago and at the beginning was a little hard to find the right settings but once the skimmer finished the breaking in period and i found the perfect settings the skimmer haven't stop pulling dark and nasty gunk!!!The skimmer is also very quit as compared to other desktop size skimmers,even my mp10 is louder than the skimmer! I'm very happy with it.
