Wow what a device, certainley better than expected featured

Installation and Operation it was ready right out of the box, instructions were easy to follow but just snap on the top & bottom and plug it in. in my small 36 gal tank anything larger would have been an issue for me but the magnetic connection to the tank made it easier to get into the proper location.


Performance vs. Expectations In the manuals the function isn't explained well. You must be patient with the 'break in' time as each tank is different. Turn the blue knob until you see foam just breaching the lowest reservoir through the lead pipe and watch a day later. The unit will need to adjust to your water parameters and if the reservoir cup has too much liquid than close down the blue knob a 1/4 of a turn and vs a verse if nothing is in the reservoir cup.
Yours will work but ut takes time to get to where you want the skimming to be.


Value for money I highly agree that this device is well worth the size of the unit but a mention of actual dimensions would be helpful to dry fit before we hobyist actually make the purchase. You wouldn't the device too small or too large for your needs.


Customer Support I have not had any need to ask the company for direction as their manuals were adequate for myself. If you use my explanations and if necessary I can expound on them for you if warranted.


Liked about it Price for a real valuable concept for my tank, DOC Skimmer NANO
*the quality if the product and the lack of noise 9as promised0 is a dream o operate.
*and lastly a tool that easily set up, easy to understand, a concept easily to understand and the quality it was built with


Didn't like The manual too a little getting used to as it is written in many different languages.
parts are not labeled appropriately so you need to guess what is what.
And I was shocked with the size of the device, I wasn't expecting this and wish I knew earlier so I could have planned better.
And I really wish there was another version of the TUNZE DOC 9002 Nano skimmer for Bio-Cubes and other smaller taks

Good Nano Skimmer

Installation and Operation Very easy to install, directions are very thorough. I take it out to clean it once every month. Make sure the air hose is not kinked when you put it together


Performance vs. Expectations I use the skimmer on my 10 gallon nano. The break in period took a little over a week but after that the skimmer started working great, pulling out brown skim-mate. I have to empty the cup every week but not because its full but because how foul the skim-mate smells. I expected it to pull more skim-mate than it does right now, but I think thats because of the small bioload and not the performance of the skimmer.


Value for money Works great for the money.


Liked about it 1. Break in period is relatively short.
2. Large skim-mate cup for the skimmer size
3. Works great after the break in period


Didn't like 1. VERY water level dependent
2. Takes up room in my aquarium
3. Corner of the bottom plastic pane comes apart after awhile of running

good skimmer for the size

Installation and Operation The instructions are pretty clear. Yes it is easy to set up run in an intake set up or sump. I suppose if you are fitting into an all in one system you might run into clearance issues with the collection cup.


Performance vs. Expectations I do feel that for the price the performance is about right.


Customer Support I havent had any need to deal with tunze about this product. I have in the past and they are great to deal with.


Liked about it Easy to mount. Very quite and I feel the overall appearance is nice.


Didn't like It is picky about the water level. I would say the plastics on this are so so.

Not the best, but not the worst

General I am not aware of a better skimmer for a nano, but this is still by no means a great skimmer.


Liked about it Fits in the back of a 24 gallon nanocube, but you have to remove the hood.
Doesn't put any microbubbles in the tank. Huge improvement over an airstone driven skimmer.


Didn't like It is EXTREMELY water level dependent. If you want it to work well be prepared to puchase an auto top off system as well. If you don't use the hood that comes with the tank, have a good auto top off, and have some patience this is the skimmer for you.

Great Skimmer

General over all its a really great skimmer for nano tanks. I defiantly would buy another one if i had another nano tank set up.


Liked about it The amount of skimate it pulls out.
it is extremely quite. i had a redseamax skimmer before and now with them swapped and the tunze in. i couldnt be happier


Didn't like its not made out of the best material but doesnt affect performance
some
what difficult to tune too but its still breaking in
needs perfect water level

Great nano skimmer

General Pay attention to the recommended water level indicator on the side of the main skimmer housing. Not maintaining a proper sump water level will definitely affect skimmer performance.


Liked about it Easy to setup. Adjust the mounting bracket and drop the skimmer in.


Didn't like Can be difficult to tune and therefore skim consistently.

best bang for the buck

General If i set up another 29G I would incorporate this skimmer.


Liked about it For this size i don't think that it can be beat. It's discreet/almost hidden. virtually silent and doesn't leak bubbles into the display.


Didn't like How water level dependent it really is. Plastic quality feels cheap but who cares if it works well.

Gem.

General love it!


Liked about it Can hardly see it in the tank, started producing skimmate in less than a week. Magnet mounts are easy and look clean. Aesthetically pleasing, Giant skimmer cup for its size. Have had no problems. From all I researched, was the best bang for the buck on my 29G reef.


Didn't like bottom plastic pane may leak microbubbles for a few days after cleaning.
