Runs great relatively quiet By Sal on 1/26/2019Sal would recommend this product to a friendI had the Classic 150 on my 8o gallon for 10 years worked flawlessly ....Upgraded to 300 gallon tank and picked up this 5000 sss. ..... it’s BIG ! Just fits in my Eshopps 300 but it’s skimming great already .... Easy to dial in

Skimmer By jeremy on 8/30/2016jeremy would recommend this product to a friendBest skimmer I have ever had very powerful skins like crazy
Love it By Antman on 11/17/2014Antman would recommend this product to a friendI got mine down to a sticky mud like state that I love ik going to say the best skimmer so far and I'm happy I have went the step to get it
Large & powerful skimmer By Bill on 9/21/2014Bill would recommend this product to a friendThis unit replaces an early model octopus skimmer that I had for many years- it does produce a lot of wet skim-waste where as my older model produced more of a sticky clay waste. I am hoping that with a little adjustments i can dry the waste a little.
All being said my corals and livestock seem to be extremely happy with the water quality and I am happy with the octopus quality
Would this skimmer fit in a 55 gallon aquarium as sump?
That tank has a width of 13" and the skimmer is also 13" wide. If your tank has a lip or trim on it I do not think it will fit in there.
Looking for a replacement O-ring for the neck. Could you please tell me where i could locate one, size, and material?
