I never understood the whole "See the build quality" comments until now. I always purchased my products based on bang for my buck and never paid attention to names. If the product performed well, I would purchase it. I needed a new skimmer for a smallish build and was originally going to go with an inexpensive 6" Reef Octo 110. I saw the crazy deal BRS was offering and ordered the Omega 130 for less than the reef octo. I now understand the "See the build quality" comments of more expensive skimmers. Not only is the box heavy duty, but all of the parts fit together perfectly. The skimmer is dead silent and broke in quickly. The only thing I don't like about this skimmer is the small size of the skimmer cup, but with the drain in the cup it isn't a huge deal. I can't wait to get this skimmer on my new build. I would highly recommend this skimmer to everyone.
Also, I find this skimmer to run best at a depth of 7".

I never could figure out why the !*c% anyone would pay so much money for a protein skimmer. Now I know. It simple and beautiful all at the same time. I have a reef octopus that has never been balanced. The pump has always knocked it over sideways and I have always had trouble keeping it level. I used to think to myself "all they would have to do is make a little plastic stand so the thing would sit level and all would be well in my protein skimmer world"
Guess what.. This one HAS A LITTLE STAND FOR THE PUMP.
There is no big red valve on top to control the flow... You twist the red stand pipe a little and 'boop' its done. VERY NICE. Thanks BRS!
