3 months still loving it

Comments: I've got this in my nano sump under my biocube 29 and I'm very impressed with its performance! I've had it for about 3 months now and it pulls the nasty funk out of the water very regularly and quietly. I'm about to buy a second one for my FOWLR tank.

Comments: The Reef Octopus BH 50 is a workhorse taking care of my 28 g RedSea 170 nano. The bubble blaster pump (pinwheel) does very well. Did not use the hang on device as sump/cabinet space would not allow. I would recommend this model for nano aquariums coupled with a sump.

Comments: This skimmer is the best skimmer I purchased by far, it's super quiet, small footprint, and pulls out a lot of gunk. What's unique about it, is that the pump is also a surface skimmer, as well as adjusting the skimmer in so many ways. Mine is in the sump, I attached a 1/2 elbow to the outlet, so it dumps the water into the 2nd chamber. It's being used I'm my 30g mix reef tank, and in a 21g sump. I purchased another one for my 45g cube soon to be seahorse tank. 4 thumbs up.....

Comments: I received the skimmer and was excited to put it to good use. The directions were slightly confusing but after studying the picture of the skimmer on the box, I found that was very easy to put it all together. The part that clamps to the aquarium was too small for my tank though. After some sanding down it works perfectly. I was upset to find that the skimmer itself must be inside my tank though but this will be easily resolved once I start using a sump. It has gotten rid of a lot of junk from my tank so far and the water is much clearer than it used to be. Overall I am quite pleased.
