Great Skimmer

Pros: Skims Great. Small form factor fits in my smaller stand & sump. Solid build quality. Skimmer cup is easy to clean. You get a lot for the money.

Cons: Height recommendation wasn't correct. I had to bump the skimmer up to make it about 7" and it started skimming great after that. The instructions were terrible, I had to use Youtube

Overall a fantastic skimmer. Within a week the gunk was generating out. My aquarium is a 93 gallon Cube and has about 110-115 gallons total volume. Instructions are terrible so use YouTube for a better assembly and walk through. I'll be sticking with BM for skimmers in the future.

Bubble Magus Curve 5

Pros: Easy to set up. Creates great skimmate.

Cons: Nothing so far.

So recently, I have been looking for a really good protein skimmer with hardly any bad reviews. I found this, Bubble Magus curve5. So I thought let’s try it? Easy to set up, easy to use. Had it running for 3 days andI had a cup full of Mucky dirty dark olive green colored skimmate. I am really impressed with this protein skimmer.
I’m currently running it on a 40 gallon reef tank. With 20 gallon long sump. It’s a bang for your buck. I really recommend The Bubble Magus Curve 5.

Pros: Quiet, easy to clean, beast of a skimmer

Cons: Directions are horrible, the recommendations for the height in water are incorrect

What a great skimmer!!! I've had it on my tank for a week and it's a beast. This skimmer has already impressed me more in the first week than my higher priced skimmer I had before it did in 4 years!

An overall good skimmer

Pros: It works!!!

Cons: n/a

I've had this skimmer for about 2 years now, and I have to say it does the job. I get about a cup full of nice, dark, moist, funky, skimmate that needs to be dump almost every week. I've had only two situations when it stopped skimming, and all it took was a good cleaning of the skimmer pump to get it back in action. From my experience, I think you will be pleased with this skimmer.

Great skimmer

Pros: Easy to set up, quiet, minimal break in period

Cons: Included instructions

Replaced 3 year old skimmer with the bubble magus curve 5. Been running 10 days. Was easy to set up with YouTube directions (included directions are worthless). Began skimming immediately and producing excellent skimmate. Have it running in 8 inches of water which seems to be a perfect height. Took minimal tuning. Skimmer is really quiet. Appears to be a high quality product. Strongly recommend.
