Comments: 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.....

Comments: This is a cheap product. I knew that when I purchased it, and, I got what I paid for. This is no reflection on Marine Depot, they are blameless and provided the product at a great price and shipped quickly. It's just not good. The skimmer does not work, and, support from Rio is less than good. Unfortunately, there do not seem to be any decent skimmers for smaller tanks, such as the 20 Long that I am (attempting) to use this with.

Comments: When I received it and looking through it I needed some instructions but the ones that came with it were very bad, so I looked online and found a few youtube videos that showed how to set it up. After a few days I checked on it and it was doing its job. It is a great skimmer just need better setup instructions.

Comments: Bought this skimmer about 6 months ago... finally installed it on my quarantine tank a week ago... Just pulled it off the tank and smashed it on the floor! I do feel much better now....The stinkin needle wheel has jammed 3 times.. too tricky to get the thing to foam right..I have only been a hobbyist for about 7 yrs, but I'm thinking this might be my worst purchase so far...

Comments: This product was exactly what I wanted. Works great on small system. It started skimming as soon as I got it adjusted. Takes up very little space being 7.5 inches from left to right and 5 inches deep roughly. So far I am very pleased with my mere $31 purchase.

Comments: I have tried this skimmer in a nano reef with my sea horses (with just 5 galons), not worked at all, running for more than 2 weeks, absolutely no skimming, all this skimmer did was just to put micro bubbles in the tank, very noisy, in a few words is useless, the worst purchase I have ever made in this hobby.

Does the job!

Comments: The Rio Nano Protein Skimmer is a good addition for my 10 gallon Salt water aquarium. It took a lot of time to put it together after I washed the parts. Once I put it on the tank it was creating a lot of bubbles in the tank after a few hours and adjustments I was able to get it working fine. The skimmer is doing its job. It is rather tall but if you have the H5 light fixture it will help hide it. Noise is not to loud but its still soon in my skimming process and could get louder as I adjust for dryer bubbles. I recommend this if you have time to work with it. Good for the price but in this hobby you get what you pay for!! Good luck!! :-)

Comments: I would have to say I don't know what all of the complaining is about. Sure when you first buy it you have to toy around with it a bunch. I have had this skimmer for 2 months now. Skims nicely, not noisy at all. Only real complaint is the width but thats it. P.S. - Anyone who has one and thinks the noise level is really bad. Try closing the air valve all the way and pull up on the tube. It should produce nice fine bubbles and prevent bubbles from going into your tank!
