Comments: After a day of running the Curve 7 in a vinegar bath solution, I set it up in my 75 gallon tank's sump. The tank has been cycling for a month now and it started pulling detritus out after a couple hours. Now it's a matter of dialing it in to get the right type of skimmate. Directions are terrible and need a serious overhaul, not sure why they are so bad for a company based in Cali. It's not difficult to figure out though. I think it's cool that the pump can be configured in a couple ways and that you can easily clean the whole unit because it can be taken apart. There's nothing that I can see cracking or rusting too which is great. The Skimmer cup is as big as my 3.5 year olds head!!! The Curve 7 is super quiet and my micro bubble issue from my old aqua c ev 180 is gone.

Comments: Skimmer placed in a new 65g set-up. Reasonably quiet (but not dead silent). Took 3 days to settle in now maintains a nice steady level. Judging on a few weeks use, seems to be a great value.

Comments: Super quiet and effective! After having a cheap skimmer I upgraded to this model it started skimming within an hour after I installed it. directions could be a little better but it's not rocket science.

Comments: Is a beast, I replaced my three gallons refugium for this skimmer, this thing started skimming since the first day that I set it up, now its been about three weeks and is making a really green dark skim, its well build, easy to set up and quiet.
