does exactly what it claims

I don't know what I was expecting, but I was certainly surprised when I took this out of the package and it was a molded piece of transparent plastic. It fits perfectly over the intake grill, and just like the package promises, water pressure alone keeps it in place. As far as I can tell, the skimmer raises the surface of the water a bit and redirects the flow down from the open teeth into the intake grill (I'm sure someone with a degree in physics could explain this more elegantly!). The result is a slight increase in turbulence and surface clearance. In my tank, the surface of the water cleared up in about 10 minutes, and it has stayed clear. It's a nice, simple fix for what seems to be a design flaw in the tank.

I install the Modular Surface Skimmer in my Aqueon Evolve 8 gallon aquarium, and work fine removing the surface scum, just like I was expecting.
