AquaMaxx HOB-1 Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer
Product Review (submitted on July 30, 2013):
First off, the instructions with this packaging were subpar at best. I was able to get through it, but found it easier to follow a few of the videos out there on YouTube. This one here was VERY helpful (copy & paste):
Anyway, this protein skimmer is very sturdy and durable. I took the advise of a previous Reviewer and ran the skimmer for a few house using with hot water and vinegar. It really seemed to help, as the skimmer began pulling the nastiness from my tank the very next day. To my surprise this skimmer is really quiet. I'm still making minor adjustments to the collection cup height, but I've noticed the water clarity has improved and also the slight layer of haze at the surface of the water has disappeared. Cost is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS SKIMMER!!!
