Great nano skimmer

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: In my experience it is difficult to find a nano skimmer that works well. I have also learned throughout my years that protein skimmers seem to break or fail very frequently. I keep waiting for this skimmer to break but it keeps working great. This is one of the best investments that I have made for my 30 gal. tank. If you need a nano skimmer for 30 gallons or less (my tank is 30 gal) don't waste your time or money with any others, this protein skimmer works great. My only minor complaint is that it is a little loud, but I put an air silencer on mine and it is fine. I hope this helps.

Comments: Quality: It seems pretty well built. I haven't thrown it around my house, but it seems sturdy. Performance: It has been producing decent skimmate. I ran into an issue with it running too wet though. I have been emptying the collection cup about every 20 hours due to it being full. The valve was running at full open so it shouldn't be running wet. I fixed this by cutting a centimeter off of the long piece of acrylic pipe on the outlet. Now, it's not running so wet. It's making a darker skimmate in the cup. Value: As someone that builds most things that I use, this is one product that I just outright purchased. For the price, it does a bang-up job. Overall: Trim the long outlet pip down to lower the level in the chamber and you will have a better skimmer. Overall, it exceeds what should be expected of it.

Comments: this is a good product without spending much! if you don't have a large aquarium and don't overstock; this may be what you're looking for. Keep in mind you get what you pay for. this unit doesn't come with much instructions on set-up and operation. Hit and miss with common sence best describes it.
