Comments: quiet, efficient, does not take up much space. Only thing I do not like as much is it is not as simple to clean as some of the other models. Takes a little doing to get the cup off and back on. That is really nit picky I know.

Comments: Been running for couple days now....I've seen reviews claiming this product can be loud..I'd say it is not. Pulling some real nice junk out. I've owned a ASM g2 skimmer and this Diablo is far better....love it!

Comments: This skimmer is great. I opened it up, put it together and got going. Once I figured out that you want the foam just to the top before it spills over, I sat back and waited. Well, just a couple hours later I started seeing the gunk. Lots of it! My previous skimmer was absolute garbage and pulled no where near this amount of skimmate. It's going strong and I feel like the water quality is steadily improving. I have a 125g w a 30g sump and wanted to get a higher rated skimmer. I'm thoroughly impressed. She's solidly built, the pump is powerful and the unit even looks attractive. Winning all around. If you're on the fence for some reason, just pull the trigger. You won't regret it!

Comments: This is my 3rd Reef Octopus skimmer and once again very pleased. It's big but with a small footprint and fit into my sump nicely. I did not have the noise issue that other buyers had and it's already producing! It's also easy to adjust the water level with the gate valve.
