Awesome!

PROS
Quiet, easy to setup. Working so far...
CONS
Lots of microbubbles at first, and initial set up required lowering air supply to prevent overflowing. Pump was a little challenge to prime at first
REVIEW
Was a little concerned at first with all the microbubbles being produced in my tank but those went away after 48 hours. Meanwhile, the skimmer started pulling stuff out of the water after about two hours. Inlet tube is adjustable and helped me fit into the back of my uniquarium…see photos. Very sa...Read More

My biggest regret

PROS
Absolutely none.
CONS
Read my review. There's the cons.
REVIEW
Buying this has got to be the worst decision I've ever made. It will randomly either stop generating bubbles, or will foam over, both for no apparent reason. I'm forced to disassemble the entire skimmer on a weekly basis, or the random problems become a multi-times per day issue. This single piece o...Read More

Amazing Skimmer

REVIEW
This is the third skimmer I have tried on my 56 gallon column reef. The water we have in town is terrible and I do not yet have an RO system. I was hesitant about the brand being unfamiliar with them and didn't find much in the way of information out there. It is the first skimmer I have ever used t...Read More

REVIEW
I bought this skimmer and the first time i plugged it in the shaft broke in half. It is a thin round piece of plastic. I was able to make due with a "half shaft".

REVIEW
I received 2 BM E3 skimmers for Christmas. This is the first time I have used protein skimmers on my tanks. I ran vinegar and water through them prior to installing them on my tanks (30 gallon/40 gallon). Within days they were both pulling dark gunk from the water. To keep them from overflowing,...Read More

Not so great

REVIEW
This protein skimmer has to have air on all the way or it over flows and even then it constantly over flows. Of course all my plugs to pumps lights ect. are behind my tank making this unreliable skimmer a hazard!! One plus is when it does work properly, maintaining the proper water level, it is extr...Read More

REVIEW
It took about a week to break in and now seems to be pulling a good amount of skimate off. The pump is very noisy. I'm hoping it will have a break in period and quiet down but I'm beginning to doubt that will happen. The Poor instructions made it difficult to figure out the origional start up wit...Read More
