Bubble Magnus

REVIEW
Awesome skimmer. I Have had reef Octopus skimmers in the past and this one rates right up there. I have a 72 gallon corner unit and space was limited. I couldn't fit a reef octopus to fit in the sump, so I did research and found the Bubble Magnus. It fits great and works just as good as the $300.00 ...Read More

Protein skimmer

REVIEW
Would really liked to have had better instructions. This unit is different from others I've used but the set up instuctions are not adaquate. Otherwise so far so good. Seems to run fairly quiet. Still new and trying to adjust to my tank and flow. 3 stars based on the lack of instructions.
