Great skimmer! By Kevin on 8/31/13

This product deserves five stars but I only gave it four. The directions that are provided are horrible! It's pretty self explanatory on how to we true unit up and it took me all of 5 minutes to have it in my tank and plugged in but I repeat, worst directions I've ever seen. It's a 2 page stapled packet. This unit is large, high quality plastic and skins wonderful! Within the first 3-5 minutes of it in my tank it was skimming green and brown liquid! The pump is an eyesore but on my 46G bow its unnoticeable. This is the first Reef Octopus product I have ever owned and I will be a regular purchaser of their products again in the future. And last but not least, BRS is the greatest company ever!
Great skimmer for the price By Luis on 7/5/13

Very well constructed skimmer for the price. I was surprised on how fast it started producing skimmate.. The only downside to this skimmer is if you have a nano tank the pump is kind of an eyesore.
Great so far By Landon on 5/6/13

Got this skimmer to replace a coralife. Its much more eye pleasing without the pump inside the tank. instructions were poor but got it figured out pretty quick, there are lots of vidios on youtube. Lots less noise than the old one for sure and have had no problems with it
Works Great! But, pump is large and sits inside tank By Cheryl R. on 10/20/12

The BH-100 is a great HOB skimmer and priced well also. It quickly began removing skimmate from my reef tank and my water quality has dramatically improved. The only downside of the BH-100 is the pump is VERY large and sits "inside" the tank, so it takes up a lot of room and is kind of an eyesore, however, you get used to it over time and given it works so well, is priced right and makes zero noise, it is a great value.
good skimmer for my tank By Marcus on 10/2/12

the skimmer works good but i think it must be sensitive to getting it tuned in for my 30 gallon because i can't get consistent skimming with it but it is very well built for a hang on skimmer
Excellent HOB skimmer. Much better than others on the market that I have seen. My only complaint was the lack of any literature in the box besides a diagram of how it should be assembled. By Zak on 9/13/12

Great product at a great price. Perfect for those that are just getting into the hobby and even those that have been doing this a while and just don't want an in-sump setup. Would definitely purchase again if I could go back and do it over.
Good Hang on the Back Skimmer By Andy on 9/5/12

This was the second skimmer that I have tried on my tank, it turned out to be far superior to the one I got at my local fish store. Has some fine bubbles but as it has broken in and I have fine tuned the cup on the back it does well. I really like this skimmer, keep my tank looking great!
Works Super Good! By Tyler on 6/28/12

I have just started using this protein skimmer and it seems to be working great. At the very beginning when assembling it, i had a bit of trouble with the air intake silencer. Got a bit confused???Still, this is a great starter skimmer and really pulls in the gunk and stuff!
Good Beginner Skimmer By Mike on 4/10/12

Skimmer is very well constructed, very sturdy and build well. It is being used on a 55 gallon reef tank. I finally have it dialed in pulls great skimmate.
I didn't realize how big the pump on this thing is, really is an eye sore in the tank and there is no fine tuning of the air intake to adjust the level of bubbles, you have to move the skimmer cup up and down, it comes with a rubber gasket wrapped around the outside to "hold" the current level which you had it last time. But once you find that sweet spot it really pulls some gunk.
Works great!!!! By TheBigShizz on 3/29/12

This is overkill for my 20 gallon but I bought this for when I get a bigger tank. Really easy to set up. Started to clean my water right away. I’ve had it about 2 weeks now and all the micro bubbles are gone and it seems quitter. Easy to clean as well. Works great for my tank.

I have been using this skimmer for a few months on a 29g Mantis tank. It works great 90% of the time. The problems starts when my Peacock Mantis reorganizes the whole tank before molting. So every few month she moves most of the sand and some gets in the skimmer. My only problem with the skimmer is that i have to take it apart and clean it way too often. In a regular tank people will probably not have this problem!
