Needs more pump in my experience featured

Installation and Operation I think this is a decent skimmer option for tanks under 75 gallons, but I would definitely recommend upgrading to a mag 7 pump. The mag 5 was a bit too weak in my application, and it's always easier to tune a pump down. This skimmer does require pretty regular tinkering to get the best performance out of it, so if you're looking for something thats more hands-off I'd probably look towards needle-wheel style skimmers. However, this does have a pretty tight footprint, so if space concerns are in the equation this is definitely a skimmer to consider.

Performance vs. Expectations I was a bit underwhelmed with the performance, especially with the recommended pump size. I'd recommend going with something larger than the mag 5.

Value for money This skimmer is probably a bit overpriced considering the tank size for which they're recommended, but they fit a small space and there's probably a premium to be paid for that. Not my first choice, but I've owned this in the past so I can understand why someone would decide on this skimmer.

Customer Support The manufacturer of the AC line is quick to respond to request for information, and I was very pleased with the amount of feedback they provided before and after purchase. It's a good company.

Liked about it A small footprint and easy to remove/clean the collection cup. I also like the collection cup drain feature, which will allow you to hook up a larger container for collecting skimmer production.

Didn't like over-rated on tank capability, and they require a lot of power compared to some other skimmer styles. Not the best skimmer available, but a decent performer.
