    Now that I have had some time to play with the unit and run a more wet or dry skim I think overall it is still an awesome product. Very easy to take apart and clean and once it is set I leave it go... Every week I drain the cup and always full of gunk! Def a quality product and worth every penny!
  • Awesome sauce.... By Stuart on 1/9/2015

    I have a 100 gallon system total. I have now been running this skimmer right in my refugium. Fit perfectly in the small space I had remaining. I tend to have to make adjustments quite often but I would say overall I am impressed with the job it's doing. Skim is a range of dark to lighter.... Depending on feedings and water change schedule. I have used many skimmers over my time in this hobby and almost obsessive career as it feels sometimes. Quality was also outstanding. I would def. recommend this product.
