Amazing and inexpensive nano reef skimmer! featured

Installation and Operation AquaticLife's Internal Mini Protein Skimmer 115 is incredibly easy to get up and running. Comes with an informative manual on CD. It is very easy to operate as well as maintain.


Performance vs. Expectations This little skimmer is an amazing performer. Once broken in it produces a nice, dark skimmate and keeps my 30 gallon system quite clean.


Value for money This skimmer is definately worth the price. It's about $60 brand new (you can easily find it for around $40 online). For the money and performance I would easily call it the best value in a nano skimmer available.


Customer Support I haven't delt with the company themselves but I have heard they have excellent customer service. I can definately say I am very pleased with their products.


Liked about it 1. Inexpensive
2. Excellent performance
3. Fairly quiet
4. Little to no micro-bubbles produced


Didn't like 1. Instructions are a tad vague on the ideal setup water level. Based on advice from other forums I've found that the skimmer actually functions best when the skimmer intake is just about 1/2" below the water level.
2. Took 2 weeks to get it properly broken in, could have just been my setup though and I may not have rinsed out all the components well enough.
3. Adjustment knob is a bit close to the collection cup and it's position makes it a bit difficult to adjust easily. Thankfully though, once adjusted properly, you don't need to touch the knob again.
4. The collection cup is a bit small (2"x2"x3"). In my 30 gallon system I usually end up having to empty and clean the collection cup every 4 or 5 days.

Average

Installation and Operation It is fairly easy to install. The instructions it comes with aren't the best. Mine has required a lot more maintenance than I would like as it randomly stops skimming for weeks on end.


Performance vs. Expectations It has not met my expectations as is will not properly skim even with a consistent water level. As of now, the pump has stopped making micro-bubbles so water is pouring into the collection cup.


Value for money If it worked, it would have definitely been worth the money.


Customer Support No, I have not dealt with them.


Liked about it It is very compact and fairly silent.


Didn't like The collection cup is too small.
It skims inconsistently.
The air intake sucks, so I had to mod it and extend the tubing.

Good skimmer for the money

Installation and Operation This was very easy to install and fit in the back compartment of my 24 gal cube. It can not be mounted externally but it's very small and doesn't take up much space. Adjustment is easy with a small knob next to the collection cup but it's hard to turn while the collection cup is in place.


Performance vs. Expectations Performs great on my 24 gal pulling out dark skimmate. It has met my expectations and I would buy another one


Value for money Great value for the money. I looked at some skimmers that were 3 to 4 times the price but this one performs well and I'm happy with it


Liked about it 1. Small size
2. Easy installation
3. Works well


Didn't like 1. Hard to adjust with the collection cup on
2. Collection cup is pretty small and needs to be emptied frequently
