Comments: This thing works awesome but it was hard to make it fit with my aquaclear 30. Also it's alot bigger then I thought it was gonna be! The diameter of the bottom black tube is about an inch and in the holder the it comes with it sits about an in off the glass, not very appeasing to the eye!

Comments: A perfect addition to any filter. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it was missing the hose adapters. It's easy enough to make your own though. I just cut a section of 3/4" clear flexible tubing to adapt to my Aquaclear 50. Also, the flow adjuster tends to get stuck over time. I used aquarium safe silicone grease on the threads and now it works like a charm.

Comments: I have this yucky oily film on surface of my planted tank. Fish wouldn't come up to surface to eat with this oily film floating around. Read reviews on here and decided to give this skimmer a try. It does work as advertised. After playing with the flow control (the stick) for about 5 mins water started flushing into the skimmer and my surface was clear as crystal after 15 mins. However, the flexible hose could use some upgrade aesthetically. You can improvise your own hose to make it look a bit better. Overall, very impressed with the product since it does serve its purpose for under $10.

Comments: I think that this product works really well. Especially with a canister filter. It does skim the surface, but you have to tweak it in order for it to work.

Comments: I got this yesterday and within 5 minutes of adjusting the flow the whole surface was clean. I don't know why people complain about size, it is about 14-16" tall and about 3" in diameter. I am using it in just a standard 29 gallon tank that is in a room with limited space with an aquaclear 50 that I use for running some media. For this price it blows all other surface skimmers out of the water. I am thinking about using this with other larger reef tanks.

Comments: To the people who gave it one star, learn how to mod! or get a simple hose clamp. I was getting lots of bubbles and a thick film from my 55 gallon. I have pressurized Co2 and do weekly water changes of 20%. I had even tried using pumps near the surface for getting the film off but this raised the PH. After installing this within 5 minutes I could see the water on the surface moving toward the skimmer. 4 days later I have never had the surface of my water this clear. This product works with my Eheim canister filter PERFECTLY! I would have paid well over 20 bucks for this.

Comments: Does the unit work?... yes. Is it fairly priced? Yes. Is it absolutely huge? Yes. I couldn't imagine using this in any tank under 30 gallons. It's a complete eyesore..

Comments: This is a great little surface skimmer. I'm using it on a fluval canister filter and it cleared up the surface of my tank in no time. Well worth the price. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
