Tunze

The "Nano" model series has been designed for the use in reef biotopes up to 200 liters (52 gal.) and is gentle to the plankton in operation. The DOC Skimmer 9002 removes up to 80 percent of organic waste matter, such as protein and cellulose, from the aquarium water. Very little space is required in the aquarium, and its handling is very easy. On account of their construction, these models are particularly quiet during operation. On account of the high demands in stony coral aquariums, this skimmer should be used only in aquariums with about 100 liters (26 gal.) of water. Mixed aquariums or soft coral aquariums up to 200 liters (52 gal.) can be set up without any problems.

Principle
By means of the water jet of the Nano pump and a high-performance jet, a fine pearly air mixture is produced with is released into an easy-to-clean skimmer cup through a newly developed reflection system. The protein-containing aquarium water diffuses into the skimmer through the opening in the bottom and on the rear, which is gentle to the plankton, thus suitable in particular for breeding tanks with living plankton.

Phenomenal

Great buy... Only wished the top and bottom held together a little better... Works like a champ... Did the airline mod and the silencer mod... So quiet now... I'd recommend this product to anyone that wants to clean up their tank...

Poor Quality

Inside baffle fell out (came unglued) under warranty. They sent me a replacement casing. When I opened up the bag the same inside part fell out of the new one.

good product

Good skimmer for the price. Started skimming on the second day. Easy to adjust, clean, etc.. The skimmer is bigger than I expected it to be but it still fit where I wanted it.. I might consider the airline mod and possibly an intank upgraded collection cup.. I'd recommend it to others..

The Truth

I was sucked into this skimmer to go with a intank RSM 130d media rack. The media rack is fantastic. Mr Steve has pushed these skimmers like their unbeatable. If his media racks and skimmer cups were this crapy Intank would be a faint memory. After 11 months I took the RSM topless and went to led from t5's. After consulting people that stay on the cutting I was pointed to an Aquanaxx skimmer. After baby sitting the 9002 for almost a year what a relief!!!! Tunze USA customer service is great. As a German myself the 9002 is nothing more than embarrassing. I think the Aquamaxx might have more acrylic in the collection cup than the Tunze has plastic in the 9002's body. It's. too bad Tunze didn't upgrade the 9002 when they released the 9004.

not removing nitrates

This product was easy to install, and is foaming, and I have cleaned the cup out of some waste product. Even with my slight adjustments it is not removing the nitrates from my aquarium after as few weeks. Even had a nitrate spike, my tank has 2 small live rock been cycling for over a month and one damsel.

Solid Skimmer

Have had skimmer running for about two weeks. Started pulling excellent, dark, pretty dry skimmate after three or four days. Has been very consistent, no overflowing, little adjustment needed even with my water level changing due to evaporation. Only complaint would be that the air intake is a bit noisy, but no more so than any similar skimmers. Probably wouldn't bother anyone in a living room, but with it next to my bed I prefer to turn it off overnight. There's an easy mod that can be done to add external air control and a silencer though, so easily fixable. Great skimmer for the money.
