Comments: My BH-90 has been running for about 1 year now on my 60 gallon tank and it is beyond excellent. Keeps the water parameters where they need to be and oxygenates the water at the same time. My fish are doing awesome. Prior to this I bought a Sealclone skimmer at Petco, but it was as loud as a vaccum cleaner. The BH-90 is so quiet you cant even hear it!!!!

Comments: I've have owned several skimmers and this one is by far the best! I absolutely love the fact that skimmer pump is not in the tank taking up space! I recently owned a coral life skimmer and it was a piece of c***. The prism skimmer is nice but its too small for 55 gal and above. This skimmer is the answer if your looking for a hang on the back skimmer!

Comments: Hooked up this skimmer and in minutes it was producing skimates! The best thing about it so far is that the skimmer is very quiet...unlike my remora pro! I'll probably switch my tank with the remora pro to a reef octopus. Only downside is that there's no real instructions..only pictures but once you got a couple things on its pretty easy to figure out the rest. I would highly recommend this skimmer to all my reef friends!

Good skimmer but hard to clean

Comments: I've had one of these skimmers up and running on my biocube 29 for quite some time. It is very good at pulling up dark thick skimmate. My only gripe is that to do a deep cleaning I have to take a wash it out with a garden hose as the main body of the skimmer isn't very accessable so it's pretty much impossible to clean otherwise. Still one of the better HOB Skimmers available.

Comments: Once you get past the poor instructions this skimmer works very well. I have a 180 gallon aquarium and am running this skimmer with an AquaPro C remora. The AquaPro C no longer produces any skimmate so my assumption is this skimmer is more powerful and has made my AquaPro C obsolete (not additive as I had hoped). The small amount of foam from my intake to my algal turf scrubber that was apparent before I installed this skimmer has disappeared so it might be sufficient for my aquarium.

Great Skimmer, no instructions

Comments: I have had this skimmer in service for three days now. Marine Depot was incredibly fast in processing and shipping the order. First I had to get past the lack of any kind of reasonable set up instructions and some partial assembly that I had to undo and correct due to cross threading that resulted on O-rings that leaked, frustrating. However, once it was up and running it has been fantastic. Very quiet, very efficient and great build quality. I previously a Coralife Super Skimmer, no comparison ! This is a great skimmer and I would strongly recommend it to anyone needing and HOB skimmer.

Comments: Input this skimmer on my fish only 150 gallon tank. I was amazed by how quickly and how much waist it removed. It was insane! Directions leave something to be desired but is pretty self explanatory. Very quite and fits easy. Love this skimmer. Highly recommend to anyone. I will be purchasing another one for my other tank ASAP.

Comments: Received this skimmer in great shape, well packaged and sent timely. It took a couple of days to break in, but is now producing dark green skim mate. The only reason I knocked the rating down a half star was the instructions that come with the skimmer are pretty useless.
