Pump burn out

Pros: good skimmer

Cons: bad customer service

I bought this skimmer, and it really worked very good, alot of foam and very little noise. After about 6 months the pump stopped working, I took it out and cleaned it..still didn't work. Contacted Marine Depot about the problem. She couldn't find a record of sale(bought thru Amazon ..shipped by MD . I asked about buying a new pump ..sent 2 emails, never got an answer..thats very bad customer service..shame on customer service.

Works well but measure your chambers

Pros: Works well

Cons: Can be bulky for an all in one

Great working skimmer. Once you have it right flow set, don't change it! Mine did not fit in the back chambers of my Cadlights 22g. So I removed all of the hanging clips and glued the suction cups to the side where the water enters. It gave me a snug fit while holding the skimmer at the correct height. Also did the air line mod to help with the noise. You get a good amount of micro-bubbles for the first few days but it slowly clears up as it breaks in. Creating a good amount of skim already. So far so good!

It is skimming something, but it is too hard to reduce micro bubbles. I wish had brought the Aqua C Remora.

Good for the price...

The skimmer itself works great however the mount options are terrible. The suction cups are undersized and should be glued one, and the hanging bracket is too short to use in a sump. Everytime you have to clean the cup you have to reset the whole skimmer and readjust it because the suctions cups are weak and fall off. they really should use a heavy duty magnet like the new aquamaxx nano reactor.

Micro bubbles everywhere

The skimmer is nice and looks to be well made and quite. If you can only get rid of the micro bubbles that never stop coming out. I've had it running for 2 weeks now and no results in the collection cup, the micro bubbles just keep coming. Save your money and get a better skimmer.

It works after modding it

Placed this skimmer in the first chamber of our 29 Biocube after trimming the hood to make room for the bracket. I was able to get the skimmer to work after doing the airline mod "found on YouTube " the skimmer has been in operation for three days and is starting to pull dark ski mate. Overall I'm happy with it.

Won't stay in place

This skimmer works, it's a bit loud, but the biggest issue I have is it won't stay in place. The suction feet on the back are useless and will not hold the unit in place. The plastic parts that come with the unit to attach it to the side of the tank are flimsy and don't hold it firmly in place. Since it needs to sit a certain height above the water I've been unable to successfully use this in my tank since it keeps sinking down and falling in the tank.
