Adequate for its intended purpose By Old Salt on 5/3/2014Old Salt would recommend this product to a friendI have one of these on a 27 Marineland Cube with four small fish and a bunch of soft corals. It works well. I've had mine about a year, cleaned it once and had no mechanical problems. I've had no trouble with the magnet mounts. The skimmer is super quiet and, for its size, removes a fair amount of gunk once it's dialed in. Given its cost, it's a good supplement to the water changes so crucial to keeping a small tank. You can't expect miracles, but you can expect it to do its job.
Awesome By SteadyC on 5/1/2014SteadyC would recommend this product to a friendI've never cleaned mine (in use 8+ months), produces constant frothy skim mate. Mine is held in place with one of the magnets with no issues, doesn't slide down ever, and you don't have to push the cup down, it just goes down. Second magnet not used due to tank built in bracket where the second magnet would go. Love this skimmer! Only complaint I have, it is slightly noisier than I wish it would be.
Built nice weak skimmer By Reef clown on 4/10/2014Reef clown wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHave in nuvo 38 rear chamber, mounting magnets to weak slides down when you put cup back on , skims sometimes , stops skimming very easily , pump seems to collect debris easily and reduces flow and stops working . Good skimmer if you like removing once or twice a week to completely disassemble and clean!

What is the recommended water height for ideal operation of this unit?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Brian,
These skimmers will need to be run almost fully submerged as the water intake is near the top of the skimmer body so I would allow for 10.5-11"" of water depth for optimal operation as skimmers perform differently in every system.
Hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
