  • So far good performance By Francisco on 9/3/2014

    Got this Skimmer for my 220 Mixed reef with very high bioload. I was experiencing a bid too much algae growth on the glass and was not happy with the skimmer I had. Within a day of setting up this skimmer my glass had very little algae and I now clean the glass about every 5 days. probably will get even better with time. I was specially very happy with the shape of the skimmer because it allowed me to fit larger capacity skimmer in a very limited space. I will give it 4.5 because it had no instructions, although not complicated to figure out.
  • Great Product By Don on 8/18/2014

    Contacted BRS when this line was introduced and am I glad I did. Great skimmer that has been producing high quality skimmate since day one on my 150G reef. It is in a 12 x 30 x 15 sump and the oval design allows it to fit nicely with room to spare in the skimmer chamber of the sump (about 16x12). I have had several commercial skimmers over time all the way back to the SeaClown (which actually worked OK on a 75 for me) up to this. Had the RedSea C-Skim 1800 which had pump problems and adjustment problems (giving me blood pressure problems) the entire 3 years I owned it. This skimmer has been none of that. Truly set-it and forget-it other than giving the cup and neck a thorough cleaning when it needs it.

    If possible I would give this product a 4.5 with a 5 almost never in my online evaluation review. Can't thank Skimz and BRS enough for this product.
