It could be better!!

REVIEW
Skimmer produced a lot of microbubbles at first and after 6 months it still is but not as much. It also keeps suddenly filling the collection cup with tank water for no reason.

I realized it was clogged when the skimmer completely stopped working. All you have ...Read More

DO NOT BUY

REVIEW
Do not buy this. I made the mistake of buying both the midsize and desktop skimmer for two IM tanks. The micro bubbles, noise and overflowing were way too much for $250 worth of skimmers.

good skimmer

REVIEW
I took the chance on ordering this skimmer because I have the innovative marine 38 gallon tank. Nice fit, looks like it belongs on the tank. Getting a good skim after about 4 days. The tank is cycling with no fish....
