Pretty good Product Review by Lowell (Posted on 2/24/12)

Great!

Comments: The skimmer on this unit is fantastic and is pulling dark green gunk from my tank after only day. A few microbubbles make it into the fuge side, but none get into the tank. The pump and aerator are both off the shelf parts and easily replaceable if they ever die on you. It is pretty quiet, the majority of the noise coming from the air inlet.

The refugium: Nice size and mostly well made. There is no top and I found that the bubbles that escape the skimmer into the fuge pop and make a mess so I will be fashioning a top for it. The little peg and screw that adjust how far off the tank it sits are cheap and feel insufficient. The weight on the back of the tank is a bit of a concern too ... I will probably make a little stand just so I don't worry about it.

Overall a pretty good purchase and I am happy.
