Good for wet skim only By Benji on 10/27/2014Benji wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI purchased the Skimz SM121 for my 50 gallon cube reef tank. With the sump it has about 55 gallons water volume. The skimmer is built like a tank and really is a beautiful piece of equipment. I've owned the skimmer for 2 months and have went through hours of trying to adjust it correctly. I feel like the air valve adds a level of complexity and opens it up for more error. I've tried it with with every possible configuration possible but I can only get wet skim. Even though I have a heavily stocked aquarium I would only get 1/4 of the collection cup full with wet skim every week. Maybe it is just too oversized for a 50 gallon tank. I finally gave up after 2 months and switched to a Eshopps cone skimmer S 120 after seeing it in action at my lfs. After 24 hours the eshopps pulled out a dark skim mate with almost no adjustment. I really wanted to like the skimz but it did not work for me.
Great skimmer for the price By Joshua on 9/18/2014Joshua would recommend this product to a friendGreat skimmer, takes a little bit of adjustment and time to set up, note that the instructions that come with the unit are not for this unit. Not incredibly difficult to operate but takes time and patience to get the water intake just right. But once everything is set it pulls out lots of nasty gunk from your tank which is great. The top screws right off so maintenance is quick and easy. High quality at a great price
