Works, but could be built better By DrexelLake on 12/12/2014DrexelLake would recommend this product to a friendI have the same complaint as many reviewing this online, and that is that it very flimsy and hard to get back together. The bubbles do come out all over too, but that doesn't make it less effective. Works great until you need to clean it. It took me 20 minutes to get the snaps to hold when putting it back together.
Great skimmer for small tanks By Clint on 4/11/2014Clint would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this skimmer in a 20 L for about a year and have been very happy with it. It does not appear to be very sensitive to changes in water level, produces good skimmate, is easy to clean, stays in place with the magnets. If you are willing to sacrifice a little space (the skimmer sits inside of the tank) I think this is a great choice for tanks less than 30 gallons.

hey guys! im planning to set up a 60 gal reef tank with some nice corals, anemones and clown fish and others... i don't know which skimmer will fit best...
Tunze Comline DOC Skimmer 9004 or Reef Octopus BH2000
what would you guys recommend buying?
thanks a lot
Bulk Reef Supply Hi ViKo,
If it is between these two skimmers my preference is for the Octopus. I really like the Tunze skimmer it just happens that the Octopus is rated for a much larger tank and when it comes to skimmers, I would always get the biggest one that fits in your budget and space constraints.

Will this fit in in the back of a Nuvo 16?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Brain,
Unfortunately it would be too large to fit in the back of a Nuvo 16.
The Tunze Comline DOC skimmer utlizes Tunze's "Flash Skimming" principle. The skimmer is quiet and generates a very large volume of small bubbles for efficient skimmer operation. It operates stand-alone without needing any additional equipment (feed pumps, etc) and mounts to the tank via a convenient magnet holder strong enough for glass up to 1/2" thick.
The TUNZE® Foamer generates large volumes of fine air bubbles with a diameter between .0039 to .011 in. (0.1 to 0.3 mm) On the surface of the air bubbles, pollutants such as protein, cellulose, dead cells, etc. are adsorbed immediately. The water/air mixture expands and stabilizes in the skimmer cup reactor, the water returns to the aquarium, and the protein-loaded air bubbles spill over into the skimmer cup. The patented anti-overfoaming system intermediate chamber prevents the skimmer from over foaming and controls the skimmer performance, depending on the water level and organic load. This “flash skimming” principle, compared to large skimmers with long contact time, is obtained because the substances adsorbed by the air bubbles are not released again, thus they don‘t return to the aquarium water.
