Just useless

If you need an expensive hang on filter, this is what you are looking for. Never, ever let the pump suck air if your neighbours do not care that much noise.

Not sure yet. It was defective, leaked from the first moment I put water in it. I hope it has better quality than this.. I'm waiting for my replacement.

waste of money

Great idea, poorly constructed and designed. Made with cheap materials that I broke before even installing it. Also its too big to hang on my tank with the glass hood I have

Multi Skimmer

This is a nice product - I am using it in combination with a Fluval and reverse UG. The UV light was broken when I got it, ViaAqua replaced it quickly with no complaints. Michael
