monster!!! By keni on 9/2/13keni would recommend this product to a friendThis thing is huge! Love it. Use on my 155 bowfront mixed reef tank. If u are going to get one do so before setting up your tank so u can get itin your sump b4 its under your tank.
Too big!! By Terrie on 11/19/12Terrie wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered this one after it was suggested as being one of the best by one of the reps ... however, I measured my stuff all out and it seemed it would be a perfect fit for my sump.. BE SURE TO MEASURE THE SPACE BETWEEN THE TOP OF SUMP AND BOTTOM OF MAIN TANK... although this would've fit inside the sump there was no getting it in there b/c it's way to big around!! Out $45.00 shipping it back and lots of time wasted waiting for my funds to come back so I can reorder a smaller one :(
Excellent Skimmer By John on 10/14/12John would recommend this product to a friendThis monster makes a ton of air bubbles creating skim material that is awesome. Does take breaking in, but once done, you can adjust the flow with the gate valve. Excellent skimmer.
Excellent!!! By Powderblue on 5/13/12Powderblue would recommend this product to a friendI used one of this on my 90 gallon, yes it's an over kill, but my tank has 0 no3 since day one!!!
And I have clean the skimmate once a week or else the neck of the skimmer will have 1/2 in of skimmate.

What exactly is met by the footprint dimensions? Would this fit in my sump that is 11" across?
Bulk Reef Supply The footprint is the length and width of the product, so if you drew a rectangle that was the same size the skimmer would fit right inside of it, though keep in mind your going to want a bit more room then that as the pumps need room to suck the water in, skimmer needs room for the water to exit, etc. In this case the skimmer is much larger in each direction then 11" so it would not fit.
The Diablo XS 250 Protein Skimmer is powered by the high performance Italian Sicce pump. The skimmer has a gate valve output which allows for more adjustment of the skimmer compared to ball valves and the old wedge pipe. The Sicce PSK1000 pump has an improved star wheel impeller. They are much more advanced with a digital circuit to control startup direction and speed, ultra low noise and huge air draw numbers.
- Modified cone neck design designed for easy transition of micro bubbles into cup
- Produces up to 23scfh of air pull using the provided pinwheel impeller. (Air results will vary depending on aquarium setup.)
- Each Sicce pump draws less than 30 Watts of electricity.
- Collection cup has a quick release neck for easy removal for cleaning. ½" of clearance to remove the cup.
- Diablo XS skimmer uses metric plumbing parts.
