I have had nothing but great succees with this skimmer in the past, no problems at all. They work great are easy to set up and adjust with VERY little noise and no problems with micro bubbles leaking back into the tank. And with their promotion of $20 off the price it was a no brainer! Thanks Chwey!!
I bought this for my 32.5 gallon fluval flex saltwater aquarium. I was able to fit it in the back compartment of the tank. It started working almost immediately after a very short break in period. It's easy to adust and clean. The only issue is that the water level of the tank needs to be a specific height onto the skimmer. The skimmer catch container on top overhangs a bit preventing me from going any lower in the tank, so I had to fill the tank a little higher. No big deal. I would recommend this skimmer.
Once you set the correct water lever and dial the right flow it does work.removing then putting back the collection cup needs forceful pressure. So that pushes it down and you have to reset the water level. Other then that it works.
It is next to impossible to get this thing right. It has been nothing but a pain in the butt! On the bright side, it fits in my biocube perfectly. The only downfall is that the pump doesn't put out consistant flow so I can't keep it dialed in. So... its next to useless.
It overflows like an insane amount. I did all the mods. Nothing. It didn't matter what I did to it. I had it so far out of the water the vent was sucking in air and it still filled the cup in under 30 seconds. Thank goodness it was cheap. Buying something else next payday. This was a waste.
