really impressed By chris on 11/9/2014chris would recommend this product to a friendI bought a skimmer from petsmart, about 150.00. It was loud, flooded the tank with bubbles. I returned it. found BRS, with the best price even when looking on Ebay..
Only neg. I have is they don't provide any instructions at all. All they give you is the exploded view of the unit for reordering purposes.
Good news : a child could assemble this. It started taking gunk out right away, like RIGHT away..
It is very quiet. Well designed, skims off the top, and no micro bubble.
however, it is very sensitive and two weeks later I am still making micro adjustments to it..
It will fill the container with tinted water over the evening, when tuned all the way down to the bottom of the riser tube.. I come in the morning and it is bubbling at the top like crazy. Dial it down a MICRON.. One!.. and bubbles recede to middle to the tube.. then a hour later they will be at the bottom.. At the end of the day, back at the top, and have filled the collection cut with tinted water..
So, I am still working on tuning this
Awesome By DC on 11/8/2014DC would recommend this product to a friendWorks so great, keeps the water in great shape. All fish are in tip top condition!
Fantastic By Chad on 10/22/2014Chad would recommend this product to a friendFrom the very first day this skimmer was pulling organics out of the water. My tank is brand new with only a clean-up crew and it still pulled some brown gunk out of the water. Very happy with the performance and quality and would highly recommend it.
Great hob skimmer By Joe on 5/6/2014Joe would recommend this product to a friendI have this on my 30gallon reef tank . I am absolutely pleased with it I like the design feature of the hob because I don't have a sump, this skimmer is very constant for skimming one set I've haven't adjusted it again. And also is very easy to clean the collection cup and body
Great skimmer By Jon on 11/26/2013Jon would recommend this product to a friendThis skimmer is very powerful. I have it on my 75 gallon. It takes about 3 days to break in. If there is nasty in your water you will know it because this skimmer will start puking lots of foam.
Excellent By cinman on 11/16/2013cinman would recommend this product to a friendThis was my first PS and I couldn't be more pleased. Took about a day to start pulling stuff out of the tank. Super quiet and sturdy construction and Bulk Reef shipped it our very quickly. 5 star service. Thanks,,,

Can this pump be put in a sump? The motor submersed in water
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Ryan,
If you have a sump you wouldn't want one of the HOB back versions, just the regular in sump versions. The HOB systems are designed for sump-less systems and require the water level to be near the rim of the tank its sitting on, because sumps have much lower water levels a HOB skimmer would end up out of water in a typical sump.
