I was expecting so much more, consider high end Reef Octopus instead. featured

Installation and Operation July 6, 2013

The Aqua Medic Turboflotor T-1000 Multi Protein Skimmer is made of low quality parts, thin, glued together, and in testing was not possible to really simply adjust air or water flow. It was suggested because they have a carbon media cap and output media boxes, it could run Ozone. It's too brittle, and was completely useless, the body showed up broken, when replaced the 80 pound pump fell off clear nylon tubing and broke. You also had to deal with 6mm clear air line tubing and water intake, both would need to be replaced, reinforced nylon tubing for water intake, and silicone tubing at 6mm to a tee, with 1/4 inch outlets to attach to Ozone generator.


Performance vs. Expectations When installed as HOB skimmer as suggested it just overflowed, they actually said wash your food in the instructions to avoid wet foam.


Value for money Terrible, you will feel like you where raped, you can run Ozone in a Red Sea Prizm that costs 61 to 87 dollars, two drops of aquarium silicone on collection cup cover (vents), replace air tubing with medical grade silicone tubing 1/4 inch, replace carbon in media basket for water return on a schedule, test ORP probes weekly, run dual monitors, one controller and adjust for actually reading in 400mv or 50mv solutions. I had to do 88x times flow with three maxi jet pumps in circulation mode along with other husbandry listed.


Customer Support Overstated limited capabilities, solution did not work, very low quality, refused refund, very unprofessional and dishonest.


Liked about it Almost nothing, the large pump scared you as a HOB solution, Reef Octopus has it right with bubble blaster pumps outside of tank for HOB and adjustable collection cup to handle all conditions including wet foam from frozen foods.


Didn't like Honor, trust, and credibility of vendor was questionable, yahoo voices had the same complaints in 2006 "why you should never buy a Aqua Medic Turboflotor T-1000 Multi Protein Skimmer, they did nothing.

Well worth the money

Installation and Operation Instructions were not the best with regards to adjusting the flow to shim wet or dry. after playing around with it for a couple of week I figured out that pulling the adjustment knobs up slightly allows for the bubbles to rise high enough to skim a little wetter. I also had to reroute the output because the existing dropped rite on the input pump, and i didn't feel that skimming the same water twice was very effective.


Performance vs. Expectations I works great I have a 150 gal with 300lbs of live rock 13 fish with a couple LPS and sofies. I clean it once a day every day it always produces waste ans is very reliable. Very easy to clean!!


Value for money Yes I am very pleased with this product. After spending nearly $7,000.00 on My tank I wasn't about to skimp on a protein skimmer. This skimmer is well worth the money.

Good stuff

Installation and Operation Easy to setup and maintain, can be used anywhere, footprint not the smallest if run completely in sump though so be careful. About as close to set and forget as possible. I turn off all pumps for feeding except the skimmer so sump level rises by an inch or two, no overflow issues either from feeding or water level. Easy to empty and clean the cup which is also a decent size.

Slightly better output than a super skimmer 120 on my 54g reef, but a lot less hassle.


Performance vs. Expectations Great value.


Value for money Yep, great value for a low maintenance skimmer with decent output.


Customer Support N/A


Liked about it Dependable output, sensible price


Didn't like Footprint in sump was a bit high, without the outflow box I had to play with PVC elbows and pipes to keep the return flow noise down (to zero)

Mutli

General I would not spend the money on this skimmer. Money can spent for much better units.


Liked about it The price was good for entry level reef equipment. I did like the fact that you could place the skimmer in sump, out of sump ( hang on) or hang on tank. The pump was good also.


Didn't like Overall the skimmer never did perform consistently for me. It had a habit of overflowing regularly with no known cause. I tried in sump and out of sump and it just didn't get any better. The skimmer is made from extruded acrylic and is very thin and brittle.

Good starter skimmer

General great skimmer in general


Liked about it Simple design, hang on tank so no sump needed, pump does all the work. this is a great skimmerfor any starter tank in the 50-90 gallon range.


Didn't like need to keep the air intake clean and turn off if you are using as a hang on skimmer
