works featured

Installation and Operation Very easy up and going in 10 min.


Performance vs. Expectations Skims fine I just had to install an over flow because it will over fill the rather large cup if you over adjust the flow. It was loud at first so I plugged the air intake with the providded plug and let it run for about 24hrs to let all of the air work out of the pump now its not any louder than a power filter. The over flow is only a drilled half inch hole that i epoxy a plastic elbow into and ran a tube to a 2 gallon bucket with a lid. It would have to over flow for days to fill the bucket.


Value for money cpr was 160 i paid 80 for this one at my lfs it wont handle a 75 gal like my cpr does but for my 36 gal it does just fine.


Customer Support never called


Liked about it price and perfomance also works as insump for those diy people very narrow fits well in a ten gallon sump that i never finshed.


Didn't like size for the amount of skimming abilty would be great for a 10 or 20 gallon reef if not for the size looks weird on a 10 gal

Good enough for me

Installation and Operation Very easy to set up. My first skimmer and no problems figuring it out.


Performance vs. Expectations I assume its performance is good. I've never really had something else to compare it too. I just know that after a week or two the water in the skimmer looks like coffie so its gotta be doing something.


Value for money Now that I look back I think it was a little too expensive. I bought it at my lfs for about 20$'s more than I could have got it for online (including shipping). But.. now that I've speant my money and there is no going back.. I'd have to say I like it and it makes me more comfortable about the water quality in my tank.


Customer Support N/A


Liked about it 1. easy to set up
2. looks like it does its job
3... can't really think of a 3'rd


Didn't like 1. expensive
2. kinda noisy, that prob just comes with being a skimmer
3. It is bulky.. and I don't know if there is going to be a good way to hide it when I diy a cannopy

Kinda puzzled by the one star reviews

Installation and Operation This skimmer is a breeze to install (its HOB after all), it is extremely simple to operate and adjust


Performance vs. Expectations I didnt really have many expectations as this was my first skimmer, however at the time of the review its far from my last. Although it is not the greatest skimmer it works just fine and outperforms a few others I have used. I braced the intake with a clamp and it skims even better now! Bracing it locks the intake in place providing a more constant path.


Value for money I bought this used, so I cannot comment on this. If these really go for a 100 plus new then there are better skimmers for your money, but also some worse.


Customer Support Never dealt with them.


Liked about it I liked the ease of use
I like the design
It seems to work well for me.


Didn't like Nothing I didnt like other than the fact that their are better skimmers out there, however I bought it used and for the price it works great.

I would avoid this skimmer. Price is catchy but pe

Installation and Operation Easy to install. Instructions are good. Operation and maintenance is a different story. I kind of feel bad about this review but I really did not like this product.


Performance vs. Expectations I expected this thing to perform like a champ because of the maker and the price but I was not impressed.


Value for money Not worth the money. Very disappointed in this product.


Customer Support Did not attempt after reading several forums, blogs and websites about the quality of this product.


Liked about it Easy to install is about it. One piece unit.


Didn't like Never could get it to work properly. never seemed to really break in. I think overall it was a good idea but just a bad design. I would not recommend this skimmer at all honestly.

Really Noisy!

Installation and Operation Easy to install.


Performance vs. Expectations It performs very well, except for the fact that it is incredibly noisy. I had to return it. There are better and quieter skimmers around, though, for a ten gallon tank, this would be a good fit.


Value for money Costs too much.


Customer Support Didn't need them, so cannot comment.


Liked about it It's a good skimmer, so far as skimming is concerned.
It takes up little space.


Didn't like It's noisy as hell. There's really not much room in the compartments meant for filtration media, but it is useable.
