REVIEW
Using with an Eheim Pro2 in a 105 gallon tank. Had a problem with protein build up on surface but this skimmer took care of it quick. Nice and clear now and seems to be pretty low maintenance so far. I highly recommend this product.

REVIEW
Awesome product!! Cleared the surface of my tank in a matter of minutes. One negetive thing about this product is it makes your filter shoot bubbles every so often. Other than that would recommend!

REVIEW
A perfect addition to any filter. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it was missing the hose adapters. It's easy enough to make your own though. I just cut a section of 3/4" clear flexible tubing to adapt to my Aquaclear 50. Also, the flow adjuster tends to get stuck over time. ...Read More
