WOW!! By Drew on 12/22/12Drew would recommend this product to a friendRetired Euroreef CS8 last year as a backup spare.
While the ER was a great model this one is actually a perfect fit for my next ten years of reef keepng. Very efficient skimmer in compact design for 180 us gallon tank.
VERY VERY easy to tune in. Extremely stable with Tunze Osmolator combo. Easy to disasemble and assemble every six months. Glad I didn't get Supermarin.
Actually this is the last of the well built skimmers that is not on the silly cone fad also. In a limited space sump, as most are, this one is great. One of best features, is the lack of seal or threads to keep collection cup on. Minutes to do cleaning every few days.
Motor actually uses more current than stated. I think it was rated by manufacture without load or head space present. It is still more efficient than Euroreef. Energy saving will not ever be realized with initial cost though.
Can go cheaper and get good results if needed though.
Love It! By Susan on 11/29/12Susan would recommend this product to a friendI never thought I would love a protein skimmer, but I am in love with this one! It's super easy to set-up and clean. I thought I was doing something wrong when my collection cup stopped filling to the brim, only to find out the skimmer had done such a great job there wasn't much left. I will never go back!
BBK is the king of skimmer By Richard on 4/9/11Richard would recommend this product to a friendI am running this on a 210 gallon with a 75 gallon sump sps tank and still it keeps up with the bio-load. amazing! little on the expensive side but if you can afford it, I would highly recommend it.
