Awesome skimmer!

Reviewers Rating Great

Comments: The skimmer is only a few days running and still breaking in. It still outperformed my previous skimmer that was rated nearly the same. Only complaint is a small sump space and the footprint was closer to 6.5" by 10" and was barely too big for the compartment that I had planned on putting it in. I would still have purchased this knowing I would need to re-arrange my sump.

Comments: In the two weeks I've had it, this skimmer is pulling some really dark product. It foams consistently and level is very easy to control. Everything I have come to expect from Tunze.

Comments: The only adjustment necessary may be a little on the air. Once set in this skimmer can produce with the likes of Bubble King and the better Octopus models. Excellent quality skimmer and easy on the wallet (a match that's hard to beat).

Comments: I am still breaking this in, but so far it has skimmed more from my 90gal than the EV-120 it replaced ever did. I was never able to tune the EV-120 to get the skimmate in the cup. This one has no adjustments needed. Dropped in the tank and every day has had dry foam in it. Cant wait to see it in normal performance. My only issue is that, so far, the collection cup is vibrating noisily and I have to adjust it to stop it. May need to go back to the manual to see what I did wrong... If possible, I will update once I have this in a while.

Comments: I hooked up this skimmer to my 175 and it started to produce foam immediately. This one is definitely better built than Tunze's older line of skimmers which fall apart. Its been put to work for the last 2 weeks, very very quiet and works great.

Best skimmer I have ever used

Comments: After much research and analysis I settled on the Tunze 9410 to replace my Reef Octopus XP2000 cone skimmer. I needed a skimmer that was smaller in size than the XP2000 and at first I couldn't believe that the Tunze 9410 at about 16 inches tall was capable of the kind of performance that I read about on the web. Well, it is, and in fact exceeds the XP2000 which I had regarded as a pretty good skimmer. In my mind the Tunze pump is clearly better than the Bubble Blaster that powers the XP2000. And as for the "cone thing," been there done that.

Comments: I have been running this skimmer on my 90 for almost two years and love it! Pulls out about a cup of seriously dark goo every week or so. Highly recommended.

Tunze has done it again!

Comments: I decided to purchase the Tunze 9410 after quite a bit of research, mainly because I have had a Tunze Wavebox for about 3 years now with no problems. This skimmer replaced my Red Sea C-skim 1800 which leaked constantly from day one.Upon unboxing this skimmer I noticed everything was well packaged. Assembly was a breeze, however my only issue was the nozzle that is meant to be secured into the pump preventing the entry of any debris from damaging it did not securely fit and I had to use teflon tape to secure it so that the fitting would not keep falling off. I have read mixed reviews that the collection cup's lid for this skimmer does not properly fit and sometimes rattles, I was relieved to find no issues with mine.As far as the operation and quality, it is approaching one week that I have had this installed on my 100 gallon reef tank and it is a WORKHORSE, they say the skimmer is the heart of your filtration system... well this skimmer has a heart of a lion. I am very pleased with it's performance and best of all its efficiency can't be beat all while remaining extremely quite, I must note I did fill the post filter with carbon (which has resulted in no noticeable noise and no bubbles) without the carbon there was the slight sound of water trickling but I expected nothing less.Over-all you can't go wrong with this skimmer, especially if you are restricted by the space available in your sump as I was.. Great product, thanks Customer Service!

Tunze Master DOC

Comments: At first I was a bit frustrated cause the manual had many different images of how to set it up and contradicted what was on the box. That was a minor set back that was resolved after calling and getting the USA Tunze rep Roger who was very knowledgeable. Once I get the Skimmer set up and running it was a Lean mean skimming machine. I have already had to empty it 2 times in the past few hours due to its efficiency. For such a compact piece of equipment it does an amazing job even if the cap/lid doesn't seal completely ( weird but works GREAT!)
