- Skimz Monzter SM201 Internal Protein Skimmer
Workhorse, Quality Skimmer By Chris on 10/5/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendHad my 201 for about 2.5 years on a 130 gallon system; display standard 75. Overkill yes, but I have no regrets. It still pulls out loads of dry foam. This is a great skimmer. I haven't had any problems pulling nice skimate, dry or wet as I prefer, over the time I've owned it. It makes so many fine bubbles that the reaction chamber's clear acrylic looks like white pvc. It's very quite too. Cleaning is a breeze. If you can provide a stable sump level it's a real set and forget skimmer. It packs a punch for its size. I have mine in a 20G long (only 12 inches wide) and there's more than enough room for my other equipment. Lastly, it's a nice looking skimmer. I know in this hobby quality should always come before aesthetics for equipment, but it's nice to open your stand and see a piece of gear that's doing its job well and is still easy on the eyes after several years of non-stop use.
Great skimmer! By Nick on 7/18/2014Nick would recommend this product to a friendSo I've had this skimmer running for a few weeks now and I love it. I originally was looking to purchase a Super Reef Octopus 3000 but the foot print wouldn't allow placement in my sump and the price for the external version was out of my budget. The foot print on this skimz model was just what I needed.
The skimmer comes disassembled and assembly was very easy. The instructions may need to be updated specifically for this product though. I have to say I was impressed by the build quality of the skimmer in this price range. The acrylic was bonded very clean. The fasteners are all plastic to avoid corrosion and the pump is very quiet with no vibration. Skimmer adjustments are easy with the gate valve and air screw adjustments. You can really dial it in.
Overall I am happy with my purchase and happy to know that BRS is handling all warranty support so you don't have to worry about contacting someone abroad.
I hope you will find this review helpful. Happy reefing!
