Comments: I bought the NAC9 for my 220 reef tank. Putting it together was pretty simple. It produced from the minute I installed it. You have to play around with the flow setting but it's pretty easy to adjust. I settled in so far at 2.5. It's much easier to maintain and adjust than my old ETSS downdraft skimmer. I checked it this morning and the skimmer cup was brown and nasty so, I'm happy with it.

Comments: Replaced a Tunze with this on my 350 gallon system. Started pulling gunk almost immediately. Have had it installed for about a week now and seems to be doing its job. Would have been nice to have "fine tuning" instructions but easy enough to figure out.

Comments: I just purchased the NAC 6 and I am very happy with it. I wanted an AquaMaxx but it was on a long back order, so I ordered this one. It was easy to assemble and it produces a massive amount of bubbles and fits perfectly in the sump. It was installed yesterday and I cleaned out the cup tonight, it pulled alot gunk out of the water. I hadn't had a skimmer on for a week and now I know I made the correct choice. Thanks MD for quick service.

Comments: Great skimmer that breaks in quickly and works like a skimmer should with no problems. Very easy to install and adjusting air flow is a breeze. Whoever says this skimmer is silent has to be deaf because the noise is definitely noticeable. I wouldn't say it is loud, but you can hear it from across the room. Since it is in my sump in a closed cabinet, it really doesn't bother me though. For the price this skimmer is great.

Comments: Awesome skimmer. I Have had reef Octopus skimmers in the past and this one rates right up there. I have a 72 gallon corner unit and space was limited. I couldn't fit a reef octopus to fit in the sump, so I did research and found the Bubble Magnus. It fits great and works just as good as the $300.00 dollar plus Reef Octopus.

Comments: I have a 72 gallon bowfront reef tank with a 20 gallon sump, and the NAC 7, due to the fact that the pump is contained within the base, sits in there nicely and seems to work well in about 8.5 inches of water (regardless of the official recommendation). It replaces a Coralife super skimmer and although performance may improve after it is properly broken in, it was pulling in perfectly disgusting skimmate after about 8 hours and seems to be doing a great job now (only 4 days later)

Amazing Skimmer

Comments: After much deliberation and research again. I settled on the Bubble Magus NAC 9. This would be for my 450g mixed reef system. I have used and owned many other skimmers and had many systems over the years. I have had great luck with Reef Octopus and their support is 1st class all the way. What lead me to try BM was the I am tired of inconsistency in skimmers and constantly having to adjust and readjust. I believe that when you spend $1000s and $1000s on a system. You want it to perform well and not to mention spending $500+, on a skimmer. Well to the good part. The NAC 9 came in exceptional packaging in a huge box almost as tall as my 4yr old. Build and instructions were easy. My build wasn't complete so I was running water thru the sump during some testing and just fired it up along with a cup of vinegar in there to help clean any oil residue from manufacturing. Some weeks later, I fired it up and it immediately started providing me with some black nasty skimmate. I did some minor adjustments over about 3 days and that was it. so far it has been running a few months and have yet to adjust it. Just clean it every so often because I like dry foam. I must say I am sold on them and will be switching other large systems I have over to this brand. Don't let the price fool you and don't think you have to spend a silly amount to get a good performer. This was half the price of my reef octopus and a better performer. I don't ever write review but felt so passionate about it this time I had too. It's an expensive hobby and every little bit of info out there helps.

Comments: Would really liked to have had better instructions. This unit is different from others I've used but the set up instuctions are not adaquate. Otherwise so far so good. Seems to run fairly quiet. Still new and trying to adjust to my tank and flow. 3 stars based on the lack of instructions.

Comments: I have had many skimmers and can say this is by far the best . I couldn't believe how quite this unit is I can't even hear it !!!! It took about a day to break in and start skimming, was pulling out alot and fast . With most units you have to adjust the flow constantly and after emptying cup , not this one. Don't think twice about this unit you will be happy. Also a pro is that there is no discharge which can be loud and splash causing micro bubbles . The break in period is fast as well
