Terrible By James on 1/2/2016James wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy experience with this skimmer has lasted two weeks and I'm done with it. I so loud when it's running correctly and even louder when it decides to get an air pocket trapped with the motor is. No mater what I do this always happens. And what did the whole thing in was when I took the bottom off to take the motor out. There are very sharp acrylic pieces that make a grove where the bottom slides in that caught my thumb sliced it open. Nice and safe. The magnet design is terrible, the air intake tube can get pinched easily and make it useles, and nice sharp acrylic pieces where you put your hands to take it apart. Awesome design, freakin amazing. I'm sending it back tomorrow.
not near as good as expected By James on 12/22/2014James wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought this skimmer because it was on sale and looked like it could out perform my skimmer. It did not perform well because of a major design flaw. the way that the air intake is designed, it will get kinked in most every configuration. When it's kinked it doesn't allow for enough air to be pulled. if they drilled one hole in the skimmer body this problem could be alleviated, but they didn't. Skimz is not a premium brand. This is not a premium skimmer by any means either.
Good product By casey on 10/24/2014casey would recommend this product to a friendI am using this on a Oceanic Biocube Hqi 29. It will not fit if you have the standard MH pendant. I am running a Kessil A360w led with goose neck mount allowing me to place it in the middle chamber. This skimmer needs a constant water level to run at 100% efficiency which you will not have with a stock cube. An ATO will address this, or adding top off often to compensate. It took a good 2 to 3 weeks to break in, but I did not clean it of residual oils.
In my application I found it necessary to remove the foam pad that sits between the bottom of the unit and pump. As it clogs with the junk that all foam pads gather in a reef tank, the skimmer needed adjustment often.
Since this is an '' in tank'' skimmer I suppose the foam is to keep critters out. To run it with the goose neck you have to slide the light mount all the way to the right... and it fits perfectly. I also run an In tank brand media basket in the second chamber.
Ask a question
This will fit just fine in the Nuvo 40. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
It would not fit in the Nuvo 16 as that doesn't have a large enough chamber. That said though, with such a small tank I would usually skip the skimmer. A 5g water change is a 30% water change on a tank that small so regular water changes are pretty easy to do and will suffice.
