I was expecting a great improvement even when going from my large economic skimmer (rated to 250g) to this one.
I was still blow away. This thing works amazingly well... best purchase I have ever made. I will only by vertex products from here on out.

Great skimmer, and producing skimmate within 48 hrs. Only downside was the pvc piece that attached the air hose to silencer came broken. Both BRS and supplier were helpful and had a replacement piece in the mail the next day.

Very high quality skimmer, easy to tune, and very strong. Hands down the best skimmer I've ever owned!
Excellent Skimmer By Ben on 10/29/2014

I have had two decent economy skimmers on my setups in my 5 years of reefing. The Omega 150 is my first high end skimmer, and there is absolutely NO comparison. I bought it on BRS's recommendation, for my well stocked 120gal reef. It turned out to be an EXCELLENT choice.
The only things I wasn't sure about at first, was the 48 hour to 1 week break in period in the instructions. After the 48 hours, it was performing the same as my old skimmer. After a week, it far out performed anything I have seen.
I love the super solid, heavy duty construction, well thought out design, and the large collection cup.
Best Skimmer I have ever owned By Serge on 10/11/2014

The construction is solid and it doesn't make a lot of noise. I was amazed of what it can pull out of the water. It took a few days to break in, but it is working well. It has been running in my tank for a few weeks now and I have noticed a drastic reduction in Nitrate.

This has been one of the best Decision I have make while setting up a tank. This skimmer (Omega 150) was working within 48 hrs and helped with my water clarity at the same time...!!

Best bang for the buck By the guy on 5/12/2014

I've been running this skimmer for several months and have had no issues at all. My tank is medium stocked and the skimate it pulls out is almost black, works great. I also like that it can be totally taken apart for cleaning and servicing. I've had other skimmers but this is by far the best one I've used. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quality skimmer.

Great skimmer AWFUL pump... By Ryan on 4/29/2014
Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I've had this skimmer about a year and a half now and have had nothing but problems with the pump. I'm on my 4th impeller now and wouldn't be shocked if a 5th wasn't soon to come... BRS and Proline have been great with helping out with the warranty, but i'll never purchase a vertex skimmer again for a $400 dollar skimmer I shouldn't be having this many problems... From the number of forum post seem a lot of people are having the same issues. I expected more from a vertex product.
