Replaced my Remora HOB with this beast. I am battling an outbreak of hair algae that will not subside despite all the measures I have tried. Decided to replace my skimmer.
Absolutely love the amount of skimmate produced. The break in period was literally 4 days. The skimmer is quieter than my prior skimmer. I ran both skimmers for 1 week just to compare. This out performed the Remora 5:1. Definitely recommend.

!st hob skimmer - worked great from the start
Works well By Shawn O on 7/13/2015

This skimmer works pretty well. As it's my first and only skimmer, I have nothing to compare it to, so.... I'm giving it a 5 because it does pull out crud from the water without making a lot of noise.. It only took about 3 days to break in. If I set it just right, I get dark skimmate. If I set it just a hair either way I get slightly tinted water or nothing but crud inside the cone. I'm running this in a 55 FOWLR with 6 fish. I think it would pull out more crud if I took my aquaclear 70 offline.

I have this unit on another tank and I love it. The best HOB skimmer out there. BRS had the best price and quickest delivery. Customer for life

Might be the best HOB By JMS on 3/16/2015

Best I have found for a HOB type skimmer. As close to a traditional in-sump skimmer I have tried. Quiet, easy adjustments that hold, no microbubbles.

This skimmer is mint. Fantastic build quality and super quiet. Best used with an auto top off system, however, as it's pretty sensitive to water level.

I bought a skimmer from petsmart, about 150.00. It was loud, flooded the tank with bubbles. I returned it. found BRS, with the best price even when looking on Ebay..
Only neg. I have is they don't provide any instructions at all. All they give you is the exploded view of the unit for reordering purposes.
Good news : a child could assemble this. It started taking gunk out right away, like RIGHT away..
It is very quiet. Well designed, skims off the top, and no micro bubble.
however, it is very sensitive and two weeks later I am still making micro adjustments to it..
It will fill the container with tinted water over the evening, when tuned all the way down to the bottom of the riser tube.. I come in the morning and it is bubbling at the top like crazy. Dial it down a MICRON.. One!.. and bubbles recede to middle to the tube.. then a hour later they will be at the bottom.. At the end of the day, back at the top, and have filled the collection cut with tinted water..
So, I am still working on tuning this

From the very first day this skimmer was pulling organics out of the water. My tank is brand new with only a clean-up crew and it still pulled some brown gunk out of the water. Very happy with the performance and quality and would highly recommend it.

I have this on my 30gallon reef tank . I am absolutely pleased with it I like the design feature of the hob because I don't have a sump, this skimmer is very constant for skimming one set I've haven't adjusted it again. And also is very easy to clean the collection cup and body

This skimmer is very powerful. I have it on my 75 gallon. It takes about 3 days to break in. If there is nasty in your water you will know it because this skimmer will start puking lots of foam.
