Excellent Skimmer By Ben on 10/29/2014Ben would recommend this product to a friendI have had two decent economy skimmers on my setups in my 5 years of reefing. The Omega 150 is my first high end skimmer, and there is absolutely NO comparison. I bought it on BRS's recommendation, for my well stocked 120gal reef. It turned out to be an EXCELLENT choice.
The only things I wasn't sure about at first, was the 48 hour to 1 week break in period in the instructions. After the 48 hours, it was performing the same as my old skimmer. After a week, it far out performed anything I have seen.
I love the super solid, heavy duty construction, well thought out design, and the large collection cup.
Best Skimmer I have ever owned By Serge on 10/11/2014Serge would recommend this product to a friendThe construction is solid and it doesn't make a lot of noise. I was amazed of what it can pull out of the water. It took a few days to break in, but it is working well. It has been running in my tank for a few weeks now and I have noticed a drastic reduction in Nitrate.
Outstanding By Dinoflagellates on 5/22/2014Dinoflagellates would recommend this product to a friendThis has been one of the best Decision I have make while setting up a tank. This skimmer (Omega 150) was working within 48 hrs and helped with my water clarity at the same time...!!
great skimmer By John on 5/16/2014John would recommend this product to a friendgreat build, great quality and dead silent my only issue is the break in period so far im up to day 4 and bubbles overpower the skimmer cup like crazy, all my other skimmers were almost instant break in
Best bang for the buck By the guy on 5/12/2014the guy would recommend this product to a friendI've been running this skimmer for several months and have had no issues at all. My tank is medium stocked and the skimate it pulls out is almost black, works great. I also like that it can be totally taken apart for cleaning and servicing. I've had other skimmers but this is by far the best one I've used. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quality skimmer.
Great Skimmer By Rod on 5/8/2014Rod would recommend this product to a friendAfter months of research for my 125 gal, This is the BOMB! Well made is an understatement, Very Quiet, Skims Great
Great skimmer AWFUL pump... By Ryan on 4/29/2014Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI've had this skimmer about a year and a half now and have had nothing but problems with the pump. I'm on my 4th impeller now and wouldn't be shocked if a 5th wasn't soon to come... BRS and Proline have been great with helping out with the warranty, but i'll never purchase a vertex skimmer again for a $400 dollar skimmer I shouldn't be having this many problems... From the number of forum post seem a lot of people are having the same issues. I expected more from a vertex product.
Best investment I made By James on 4/23/2014James would recommend this product to a friendI'm loving this product. I wish I brought it sooner. I highly recommend this protein skimmer to anyone who want a great protein skimmer.
Almost Silent and well built By Ryan on 3/20/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendSolid build and quick break in, I have had it for almost a year now and its amazing. easy to clean and remove almost all parts. the metal on the skimmer is titanium. thats win! pulls out blackness.... can't beat this !
Best skimmer I've ever used. By Ryan on 3/20/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendHands down the best build quality I've seen on a skimmer for this size. super easy to use. I don't have do mess with the settings all the time. i never have a problem with micro bubbles. I did have a problem of the pinwheel coming unglued but BRS was quick to have parts sent to me. I would definitely buy this skimmer again
Great By James C. on 2/5/2014James C. would recommend this product to a friendEasy to Set up, started to skim in about 48 hrs.
Silent and very well built, I've had other skimmers in the past and Vertex makes others feel like a toy. Very solid.
works awesome By Michael on 2/1/2014Michael would recommend this product to a friendI got this skimmer for my 90 gal. The skimmer takes a little time to break in but once broken in the skimmer works great. The build quality is fantastic and feels very solid. I wish it was 1/2" shorter so it would fit in my 20L sump better.
