A great Skimemr for the price featured

Installation and Operation Instillation was very easy! Pretty much plug and play.
I ran thus skimmer ov a very heavily stocked 75 and it was awesome.
I previously had a very cheap skimmer and thin one kicked it's butt.

after only 2 days this skimmer was producing foam. (break in time)
I was emptying the collection cup every 2-3 days for the fist week or two.

Just an awesome skimmer for the money I do not think you can find a better bang for your buck on a skimmer. '

The OTP pumps are not considered to be the best quality I had a lot os issues with noise and rattling with this skimmer but after running it for almost 2 years with never cleaning the pump it never once failed on me.

This is a large skimmer. It would not fit under my standard 75g stand. I has to move my sump out from under the stand and create a box for it.


Performance vs. Expectations This skimmer really performs. Foams like crazy!
Add this skimmer and you will be dumping skim for a week trying to keep up.

I did a lot of research before buy this skimmer so I expected to to really perform and it did surpassing my expectations.



Value for money I did a lot of research before buying and after two nears never regretted my decision. I great pump for the money and you would be hard pressed to find a better deal!


Customer Support Although this skimmer cam in with a broken impeller I went through the retailer for that. I have never had to deal with customer service.


Liked about it It skimmed like crazy
Very consistent
rarely went flat


Didn't like it's a little on the big side
the venturi was loud
high power consumption
no drain for collection cup

Worth the hype!!!

Installation and Operation Installation was easy. Comes out of the box in several pieces, but using the instruction and the diagram it is easily asssembled in under five minutes. Has a large footprint!!


Performance vs. Expectations This skimmer exceeded my expectations! It has a good head of foam, and skims like crazy!!! Break-in period was short! It was producing nasty green/yellow skimate within a couple days of installation.


Value for money With this skimmer, you definitely get what you pay for! A machine that does its job and does it well.


Customer Support I have never had a problem with it, so I haven't had any need to contact the company's customer service department.


Liked about it Pros:
Skims like crazy
Large collection cup


Didn't like Cons:
Large footprint
Pump can be noisy at times
Pump isn't the most efficient

Awesome skimmer

Installation and Operation Although the instructions were basically a picture it is pretty easy to assemble. It is quite large. It may not fit under some stands. I had to change my sump to a 30 breeder in order to remove the collection cup.


Performance vs. Expectations Great performer! I cleaned it with vinegar prior to installing. It was foaming very quickly. I had dark skimmate the next morning to dump.


Value for money This is the first skimmer I purchased. I decided on it after talking with others on what they recommended and looking at other reviews online.


Liked about it Easy to assemble.
I have had no performance issue in the few months I have had it running.
Very well made.


Didn't like Kinda on the large side.
Pump is a little loud.
Wish it came with a Sicce pump like the EXT.

Good intro skimmer

Installation and Operation Easy to install, although the instructions are quite vague


Performance vs. Expectations worked well, good for the money


Value for money Good value, better than most skimmers


Liked about it Initial cost and size.


Didn't like Efficiency of the pump, which is poor at best. The Extreme's pumps are alot more efficient.

Great skimmer

General This skimmer worked much better than my previous similarly sized ASM. I preferred a gate valve and it was very easy to mod and several kits are available if you prefer that route.


Liked about it Price, size, noise level, and performance


Didn't like Water level adjustment, mod to a gate valve

Takes a little bit to break in
