Overall, great value
Posted: 9/11/2015 from Spring, TX
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.

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.
