Innovative Marine AUQA Gadget Nuvo SkimMate Nano Protein Skimmer Reviews

Average Ratings:

Works well Product Review by ROBERT FREDRICK (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: This skimmer works well and produces a lot of skimmate. The only problem i have had with it (I've had it for 6 months now) is the air line tubing, it gets clogged with salt dust and the performance slowly decreases. I realized it was clogged when the skimmer completely stopped working. All you have to do is clean the airline tubing every 4 months and it will be a great skimmer for your tank

Loud and erratic Product Review by Bucknuter (Posted on 2/26/14)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Have had this skimmer for almost a month. Still producing tons of micro bubbles and the unit is very loud. Overall not what was advertised on YouTube. Clearly not designed for the Nuvo 16 as you can't adjust the height high enough for good consistent performance. It will overflow for now reason and spill over onto the ground. Love my IM tank hate their skimmer . Wish I could return...

It could be better!! Product Review by JEREMY WALLS (Posted on 12/25/13)

Below Average

Comments: Skimmer produced a lot of microbubbles at first and after 6 months it still is but not as much. It also keeps suddenly filling the collection cup with tank water for no reason. I have to raise the whole skimmer as high as I can and release the air control all the way to stop it from overflowing. I have talked with them and they say that is normal. I dont know!!!

Fair at Best Product Review by ELIOT TANNENBAUM (Posted on 12/21/13)

Average

Comments: As many of the other reviewers have pointed out, this skimmer is nearly impossible to dial in, and is extremely sensitive to the water level. Slight differences in the water level can result in either no skim or extreme over skim. It does fit the IM Nuvo 38 perfectly, but unless you are willing to put up with a skimmer that requires constant adjustment and fidgeting, look elsewhere.

DO NOT BUY Product Review by DAMIAN VIEIRA (Posted on 10/19/13)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Do not buy this. I made the mistake of buying both the midsize and desktop skimmer for two IM tanks. The micro bubbles, noise and overflowing were way too much for $250 worth of skimmers.
