Still Skimming Product Review by Birdbath (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I have been using this skimmer since January on my 10 gallon nano. It is still skimming like crazy! I have to empty it at least once a week. I have to clean it close to every 2 weeks which is the only downside (which comes with every skimmer). I did modify the airline in order to silence the unit. Overall, very happy with it and am debating on adding one to my new 7.5g frag tank.

Requires time to kick in... Product Review by KHOI NGUYEN (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I rated this mini protein skimmer 5 stars to offset the 1 star rating given by another reviewer simply because it does not fit their Aquapod. You should review a product based on it's overall performance, not because it is simply non-compatible with your tank. In actuality I would give this skimmer 4 stars.

Anyways, I was rather skeptical of this skimmer when I first installed it in the back of my JBJ 24 gallon nano cube, almost wondering if the skimmer worked at all or if the product was defective. It barely produced any bubbles regardless of how I adjusted the knob, and it was annoyingly loud. Since it came with a 1 year warranty, I thought "what the hell, i'll give it some time before I dismiss it as broken or ineffective". Turns out that after 2 weeks of leaving the POS (or so I thought at the time) mini skimmer on, it finally started working properly and I can now see a ton of bubbles filling the collection cup, in addition to it being practically silent after I close my hood.

Word of warning though, this skimmer will be a very tight fit on most nano cubes, just as the other reviewer with the Aquapod mentioned having difficulties fitting it into their tank. I ended up not being able to use the mounting brackets it came with because the dimensions of the skimmer was practically flush with the back wall of my nano cube where my filtration was (I had to bend back the plastic wall to fit the skimmer in!)

Also, having the knob adjustment for the bubbles next to the collection cup is a major design flaw, making it a pain to turn it with your fingers if they're wet from messing with your tank. I find it best to simply adjust the knob after removing the collection cup rather than trying to grip it with the cup still on and using slippery fingers in such a confined space.

Initially, I would have said that this skimmer was not worth the money because of how disappointing it's performance was. However, now that I gave it some time to kick in, I am quite satisfied :)

Saved my aquarium..!! Product Review by GABRIEL YODER (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: The sleek design allowed me to place this in the back corner of my 29 gallon tank and it did the job within 48 hours. My nitrites and nitrates were through the roof until this little guy cleaned it up. The bowl is easily accessed to remove the contents and although it's a little difficult to get the air leel dialed in, once done it is a work horse. I've pulled some nasty looking stuff out of there and now my tank is crystal clear.

Works Great So Far Product Review by CAMERON KINGSLEY (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: This is actually my first skimmer. When I set the thing up it didn't really do much at first. I got a lot of micro bubbles and a lot of green tinted water in the collection cup. After two nights I found that the skimmer was almost completely full. This must have been the end of its break in because once I removed the watery skimmate and turned the rate down a bit it has produced nice and dark skimmate since. I did do the airline mod which quieted the gurgling noise it makes. Now it sounds alot like an air pump or air stone. Sufficiently quiet for me to sleep.
