- Pretty nice skimmer! Review by SG
I have only used this unit for a week so I can't tell you how long it lasts or even what the skimmate is like over time (still breaking in).
The design is very nice but I can't vouch for the build quality. It is plastic and the bottom of mine is not snapped tightly together (it's like a clam shell that's not aligned and clamped together at the bottom). I doubt they are all like this, I probably got a bum unit.
But this product has 3 things going for it that I love.
1. AFFORDABLE (I doubt there's a better skimmer in this size and price range).
2. SMALL (mine is in my sump, but it looks nice enough you could even put it in your main tank)
3. VERY QUIET (this one is huge to me).
I will update this review if anything changes but so far I'm quite happy with this skimmer!
