Nice skimmer, so so pump... By Eddy on 12/14/11

Its a very nice skimmer. Sicce pump is questionable. If you check online you will see that this pump has problem starting up. The pump will just keep on humming without turning the pin wheel. I need to order a spare pump to keep my skimmer running, while I am servicing the other pump, which is like every 2 weeks. If my second pump failed also, I think I will go with the vertex, which I regret that I didn't get in the first place.

By far the best skimmer in the price range! I have this set up in my 100gal. SPS heavy tank and once it breaks in it is the skimmate king. By far the best skimmer I have owned. and would highly recomend it to anyone looking for a skimmer.

You can't get a better skimmer for this price. I've had this skimmer for over a year now and Its never had a problem. I feed my bio-pellet reactor line right in to it, skims all of the bacteria right out of the water.

I thought my old skimmer was great. This one pulls out so much stuff compared to that one that I am just floored every time I look at it. For this price you can't go wrong.

I never realized that protein skimmers turned water to milk until I set this thing up in my sump. From the bubble plate to the neck filled with micro bubbles so small and fine it looked like it was full of milk. My old skimmer took a week to produce as much skimmate. I have only had it for a week now so it is still breaking in but I have a feeling it is going to do wonders for my tank. BRS seems to run out of them real fast so if your looking for one here and they have them grab it when you can.
The best skimmer you will find for 300 dollars hands down I dont think you will find one this nice for under 5 or 6 hundred either
Very good skimmer for the price By Lawrence Hufty on 4/22/10

I use a 200 on my 155 gallon tank, and the amount of protein it removes is great. I have not used any other skimmer, but the wedged adjusting tube works well, although it is somewhat finicky. The pump can be a bit noisy, but again, I have nothing to compare it to. My pump had issues, and required that it be returned to CoralVue (the manufacturer). Customer service was fantastic, turn around time was a day. It works great now.

With out a doubt one of the best skimmers on the market.. But the pumps are extremely noisy. Changing wheels does not help..
