OK for the money By Tom on 6/24/2014Tom would recommend this product to a friendI bought this skimmer for my QT. The instructions are vague but if you have a general understanding of how a skimmer works, you should be ok.
As for function: Maintaining water level is crucial if you want any type of consistency. The collection cup is very small so a skimate collection container should be considered. It will create micro bubbles so you may want to consider some type of bubble trap. But to solve all of these issues, I set the skimmer in hob refugium and once it broke in, besides emptying the collection container once a week. I didn't have any issues.
Overall terrible By Zak on 3/10/2014Zak wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSo i bought this for my IM tank and all i have had are problems. The air valve constantly clogs and some times air just stops flowing through i had a 100% better experience with an oceanic biocube skimmer; if you don't know about it, its the worlds tiniest skimmer powered by an air pump. Do Not get this product!
Great for a small Tank By Den on 1/24/2014Den would recommend this product to a friendI have this on my 10g I use as a frag tank. Started pulling skimmate almost immediately. Would have been 5 stars if it weren't for the directions that came with the unit. Pretty much useless. Had to find a you tube video to check how to set it up.
Good skimmer for small tank. By Geoff S. on 12/17/2013Geoff S. would recommend this product to a friendWithin just a few hours it was pulling dark smimmate from my tank. I am using it on a 36 gallon bowfront which is larger thsn the recommended max tank size but I couldn't pass up on the price of it. I have been running it for almost 2 weeks at this point. It was a little tough to setup as the instructions were extremely vague but I got it figured out. It seems a bit overly sensitive to the water height - I am using it as a hob on my display tank. The size is just right to not be overly obtrusive in the tank yet not too small to be ineffective.
