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

Fantastic skimmer! Product Review by JP (Posted on 1/23/13)

Excellent!

Comments: I bought the midsize 65g version to replace the AquaticLife Mini 115 for my 12g DT (heavily stocked tank with mix of ½ soft/LPS and ½ SPS) and 10g refugium with frags. While the AL Mini 115 did a decent job, the intake port was small and the water draw was not strong enough to pull in 100% effluent from my DIY mini biopellet canister.
I went for the midsize PS because: 1) need an efficient and larger PS for 100% effluent intake from the biopellet canister 2) having read that manufacturers are often overly optimistic about the gallon rating and if keeping SPS or heavily stocked tank, the gallon rating would sometime decrease by a 1/3 or more 3) supplementary coral feeding would increase waste, and 4) want to run a ULNS.
The construction and material are very solid. The craftsmanship could improve a little. The tube inside the collection cup was slightly leaning to one side and not perpendicular, but it should not affect the function of the PS.
Installation was quick and easy, did not install the water outlet pipe or sponge. Water line is about 1.75" below the collection cup. Attached a PVC T-connector to the water pump intake port, hooked up the output of the biopellet canister, and by the 2nd day there was dark skimmate in the collection cup. There are still some micro bubbles, but minimal and not as much as I thought it would be. I'm not sure if soaking in vinegar/water bath for a couple of hours helps with the speedy break in. Now going on the third day, the volume of the skimmate that it had pulled out is equal to 1 week of skimmate from the AL Mini 115. The quality of the skimmate is much darker and not as wet.
Highly recommend this PS. I gave it 4 ½ stars instead of 5 because of the craftsmanship.

Great Skimmer for the Nuvo Product Review by GERARDO GONZALEZ (Posted on 10/25/12)

Excellent!

Comments: Had this for about a week now on my nuvo 38. Took about 2 days to fully break in. Now skimming great. Love the fact that you can adjust it. Skimming a little wet for my taste right now. Looks like dark tea. Hopefully ill be able to get it down to that dark sludge looking skimmate. Overall i really recommend it for the nuvo.

Great!

Comments: I took the chance on ordering this skimmer because I have the innovative marine 38 gallon tank. Nice fit, looks like it belongs on the tank. Getting a good skim after about 4 days. The tank is cycling with no fish....
