The most reliable skimmer ever made By Rich on 10/11/2017Rich would recommend this product to a friendThe legendary bubble blaster pump is the most reliable pump ever made and paired with the 12" tube is amazing. These pumps used to come with 3 year warranties because of the reliability, but due to liability have 2 years now. The pump is ultra quiet for its size, starts, and stops without issues.
Compared to the Regal 300int, there is NO controllable pump, there is NO float switch, NO apex control or additional bells and whistles to fool you. No controller to be an additional point of failure. You get what you pay for in performance and reliability.
I paired with with the Octopus 300 neck cleaner and cleaned the 1 gallon cup monthly!
Excellant Bubble Master Pump,. GREAT SKIMMER, I tried many. By PRH on 9/30/2017PRH would recommend this product to a friendI ran tubing to 2nd air inlet to a Ozone Generator, its off, but that seemed to make the quantity of air correct and quite stable. I did remove it, the skimmer would then over react when it had protein to skim. I have not tried capping 2nd inlet, that is supposed to make it quiet. It is with the airline to Ozone generator above it on a shelve next to tank. IT IS, A GREAT SKIMMER especially for smaller tanks (75 gallon I have), it was cleaning a 30 gallon 1/2 circle, now a 75 gallon, never too much.
Beast By Jack on 12/30/2016Jack would recommend this product to a friendThe skimmer broke in quickly taking less than 2 days to produce skimmate. Great footprint but tall. Measure carefully if height challenged under the display tank.
Perfect Skimmer!! By Cody Ramirez on 6/1/2015Cody Ramirez would recommend this product to a friendThis skimmer was perfect for my new 225 gave me lots of room to expand the different types of livestock I want to go with! Fits perfectly into the tideline 48 sump
