My first skimmer I purchased was a junky budget skimmer thinking I could save some money, I ended up breaking the skimmer. I took that as a sign to get something of quality mainly because everyone emphasizing to me NOT to skimp on the protein skimmer. I took the advice of everyone and purchased this bad boy, the quality, functionality, and performance is unparallelled to anything I could have hope for. Took out half a cup full of dark nasty gunk within a few hours of setting up. Definitely recommend this product to anyone in the market for a high quality protein skimmer.

I bought this for a 55 gallon I set up recently. It was pulling out dark brown nasty stuff within 2 hours. Instructions on set-up leave a bit to be desired but its 90 percent put together in the box.
Best HOB Unit Ive Come Across So Far By Phil on 2/26/2014

Since receiving mine, it has been running and skimming its little pump out! The design is great but there is one thing I would offer to customers using this for a refugium, and that's a long intake pipe seems how they are metric and not standard. Only complaint but with some quick thinking, problem solved!

I recently ordered the bh 1000 from this site. I arrived yesterday. The box that it came in was labeled bh 1000. What actually came in the box was the bh 100. Bulk reef supply said that I would to be able to return this skimmer because it is used. I would have not taken the skimmer out of the box if the box said bh 100, but the box said bh 1000. The first couple of e-mails I sent were responded to pretty quickly. Now the replies have stopped. Guess I'm out of luck right?
Great HOB Skimmer By Skimmer Watcher on 12/12/2013

Love this skimmer. First hang on back skimmer ever purchased. I have other larger skimmers in other tank sumps but we were looking for a smaller sumnpless solution for my son's nano reef tank. His tank is under 20 gallons and this is working great so far. Great build and design. Easy to set up especially if you already own skimmers and know how they work. Operation is very quiet in his bedroom. The collection cup does vibrate and make a pitched noise. But we easily eliminated that buzz by setting a paper weight on top of the collection cup lid. Buzz gone. Great product. We are hoping it lowers his Nitrates level compared to his old carbon pad filter. We haven't tested water quality yet but will do so soon. Skimmer started pulling algae from the water right away. He cleaned the glass right after we hooked it up and literally within minutes that algae was in the skimmer cup. Amazing!

This is the best skimmer that I've ever owned. The design and construction are top notch. Sure the instructions are not the best but, as others have said, there are a few youtube videos that show the installation and operation of this skimmer. It took me all of about 20 minutes to put together, fill up, turn on and adjust. In about 4 hours I had dark brown skimmate already foaming up and into the collection cup.

I went on and bought a crappy protein skimmer at first then switched to this one and I notice a MAJOR difference. Amazing product
This skimmer is the best I've ever owned! By Izzy on 8/24/2013

The skimmer is remarkable! I never had a skimmer like this.. It keeps making skimmate and it takes out the most nastiest things in your water that you cannot see! Its really quiet, the lid makes a little noise but if you adjust it properly it goes away!
Well worth the wait By TimS on 8/20/2013

Still breaking in the skimmer and each day it pulls out more and more stuff. This is exactly what I needed for my tank with nitrates at 80ppm. I would have given it 5 stars, but the directions do suck and can be a little tuff to get started. Luckily there are videos on u tub that can help along with some forums. I am looking forward to how well it is going to do for my tank, 45 gallon soon to be reef tank.
Exceeded my expectations! By Izzy on 8/18/2013

I upgraded from a aqua medic turboflotor t1000 and I have got to say I am pleased with the results! I started to see skimmate after 2-3 days. I haven't changed my water for awhile and my water had a little smell to it until I started using this skimmer, the smell is now gone. The reason I like this skimmer because it is cost efficient for my 55 gallon reef and I like the fact that the intake pipe is deep in the tank. my previous setup was with a sump and that was not successful since I had didn't have a top off system the water level would drop all the top and one time frying out one of the sump pumps. So now I am going sumpless using a Berlin method of filtration relying on strong lighting, great skimmer like this and live rock. Overall, the skimmer has exceeded my expectation and I highly recommend it to everyone! I like the fact that its really easy to service as well! The instructions is a little vague, but it's all common sense and self explanatory. I hope the pump will last me a long time, hopefully the pumps are readily available for this unit.
