Waste of Money!

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

Very pleased

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!!

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.....

Rio Nano

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.

great little skimmer

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.

Save your 32$

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...
