What more could you ask for?
We utilize quite a bit of Skimz equipment for a variety of our builds. We have 4 of these units out there now and we're absolutely enthralled with the performance. A truly set and forget unit with adequate sump water level and a "short break in" period
Currently running on:
1x heavily stocked 320g Total water volume FOWLR with a sump height of 9''
1x heavily stocked 280g Total water volume Synthetic insert with a sump height of 7.5''
1x Heavily stocked 380g Total water volume Mixed reef with a sump height of 9''
1x Heavily stocked 250g Total water volume FOWLR with a sump height of 8.5''
Most common maintenance is the cleaning of the oversized venturi and air silencers every quarter if that.
