Great skimmer

Love this skimmer, well made has a small footprint and works like a champ. Breaking in took about a week but after that I have been getting very dark skimmate. I love that I could squeeze it between the media basket and the back wall in the first chamber of my JBJ rimless 30.

Nice

Excellent product, quiet but not the quietest, one week for break in, and no micro bubbles. Would recommend.

Great buy!

I purchased this skimmer to replace an older hang-on Remora Pro on a 29 gallon mixed reef tank with a light bioload. The main inhabitants of the tank are my pair of Latezonatus clownfish, so I wanted a skimmer that would do the job and not make a mess of the tank. So far, this little skimmer has been and done all I hoped for and more: It was easy enough to assemble the included magnet spacer (required on tanks with a plastic rim); it is small and easily fits in an unobtrusive corner of the aquarium; it produces whatever sort of skimmate you tell it to and it is easy to adjust the setting to adjust the skimmate; the materials used are satisfactory in quality; and it is silent. The only con I found on it while assembling the magnet spacer-the plastic clips the manufacturer used were too small to securely hold the spacer to the skimmer body so I had to superglue the spacers to the skimmer body. The skimmer even comes with its own little cleaning brush, which was a thoughtful touch from the manufacturer. Overall this is a very good purchase for the money, and since it is a Tunze product I expect that the reliability and longevity of the unit will be good.

What a buy!

This thing kicks butt! It was easy to follow the instructions for setup. The magnets that secure it in place are heavy enough to do the job but are not unmanageable. The rubber spacers between the magnets and the skimmer keep the skimmer from vibrating on the glass. This thing is as close to silent as you can get! I love that it mounts to the inside of the aquarium, but it doesnt take up much are for how much it skims. I have it in a display tank and it isnt big enough to be an eyesore. I have had it running 24 hours and the chamber is over half full of dark nastiness. It started producing skimmate within a few minutes of setup. Quiet, relatively small, and affordable on the reef equipment scale of purchases. I highly recommend this skimmer!

outstanding performance

This is my 2nd tunze skimmer the first I purchased back in 2000. But the 9012 model works great in my 180 gallon reef tank, easy setup, slim design and within 2 hrs of running was already producing foam. Tunze skimmers are the best IMO.

Almost

Unit comes fully assembled except for the magnet extenders. Well the poor instructions didn't give you a good way disconnect the magnets other that just stick a screwdriver in. I finally got the magnets off but damaged the clips. So I had to glue the magnet extenders on to get it to work. My instruction manual also mentioned parts that were not included with this more recent model such as the little rubber bumpers that were to be installed on the magnet assembly and I was left with a small Velcro strip that isn't mentioned anywhere in the assembly instructions!

Very impressive

Well built. I soaked and ran the skimmer in vinegar and RO water for 15 minutes. Place it in my 40 breeder and it was producing skinmate within 5 minutes. I am very impressed and satisfied with it. I highly recommend it!

Works

Hard to gage performance so far in my NUVO 30L tank as I have a lot of sand particles in the water which the skimmer was not removing until I put some cloudy water treatment and now it is pulling more. But this skimmer does not fit in my tank compartment so had to glue the magnet on the side of the skimmer and put it in the pump side of the NUVO where it crowds the pump return lines. I am awaiting a ghost skimmer made for the compartment where it will sit next to the filter caddy and perhaps do a better job. It also tends to tilt and move where it is now.

Excellent Skimmer

I was quite impressed with this skimmer. It started pulling gunk out of my 30 gallon tank in literally an hour or so and has continued to do so since then. The collection cup is a bit small and gets filled rather quickly, but I am very satisfied. Oh, and it is super quiet as well. You won't even hear it running. Two fins up!
