No, I would not recommend this.


Pros: Quiet

Cons: Garbage

This thing is terrible. The instructions are atrocious. It doesn’t work with either the included instructions or online advice. Recommended water level is 9”?....The insert says 8.5cm...I think...the English is so terrible it is hard to be sure if that’s what they intended. No way to adjust this expensive piece of junk and expect it to stay working. Do not buy this. What a waste of money! After I purchased it, at the recommendation of a vendor, nearly every LFS worker told me they are the worst! Super.

This thing sucks!

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Finicky!

Did a ton of research and wanted the best for my first tank set up. Got a good deal on it for Black Friday last year. It’s been running for 7 months now. True to other reviews, this thing is dead quiet, at least when it isn’t overflowing anyway. The downside is that it doesn’t work. I’m constantly readjusting this stupid thing every time I empty the collection cup. Higher in the water, lower in the water, different kind of sponges to block the flow of water going into the cup. This thing is so touchy that the slightest change in position or set up and it either overflows or the bubbles don’t reach the cup. The dial doesn’t help. Having to do it all over again, I would go a different route.

Bubble Magnus Curve 5 Elite Champ

Pros: Quiet, efficient

I've got this sitting in 8 inches of water and it's been skimming like a champ. It took one day to break in, with no overflowing problems whatsoever. I set it to the MAX first [lowest height in the chamber] then moved it up a bit after 2 days. Since then it's been pulling some dark green stuff out of a relatively low stocked tank. The water clarity improved as well from my previous skimmer which in all fairness was a bit oversized for the tank

Curve 5 elite

Pros: Everything

Cons: Full instructions

I just replaced my Icecap K120 with the BM Curve 5 Elite. The elite is awesome and went right to work as soon as I put it in the sump! I could be happier. Fast service too!

Horrible break in time

Pros: Looks great

Cons: Can't get it to break in

I've been running this skimmer for a month now with no break in.. I've adjusted the water depth up and down with no luck.
