I've been running this unit for about 30 days and have had tremendous success. I used a MJ 900 for the feed put initially with good results but eventually purchased to recommended Hydor pump. Foaming is very good and produces very dark skim. Nice adjustment of air and water levels making it very easy to tune. the quality of the material is very high and has a solid feel. It does take up a lot of sump room due to the recirculating plumbing. Collection cup removal and cleaning is simple. I would recommend this unit to any serious aquarist.
