Q
Both
Does this act like both a protein skimmer and outside power filter?

A
This would be more of a protein skimmer. It does however have a small filter cartridge and carbon. These filters are geared for the skimmer water coming back into your tank. We would still recommend adding another form of filtration.

Does not skim, just makes noise. So-called carbon insert lasted 3 days. Don't waste your money.

Had it running for about 18 hours now. Give yourself time to get it "dialed in", as the instructions recommend 24 hrs. But it's been working quite well. I'd definitely recommend it for the money.

“It's total junk!!”

1.0
This is by far the biggest piece of junk I have EVER paid any kind of money for! It won't even begin to skim my 5 gallon sps tank! I put a bio cube lime wood driven skimmer on it, and it skims the way it should! Trust me, don't waist your money! Luckily I am able to return this to marine depot.....
