It took a few minutes to figure it out because the directions are confusing. I called them and they are very helpful and working on new directions. Once I figured out how to put it together it worked instantly. first clear liquid (OILS) then thick protein. the tank went from murky to crystal clear in a matter of 6 hours. The fish swim faster, have better appetites and its very noticeable that they have brighter colors. I am buying a second one for my other tank. Ive had four other skimmers and none compare. spend the extra money for this.

Excellent Skimmer for the Sumpless
I run my reef tanks sumpless to keep my systems simple and have this HOB on my 50 gallon sps grow out tank. It was very easy to set up, started pulling skimmate immediately, and is quite. I have a larger Octopus HOB on my 120 display and am a fan of their products. For those who dislike the clutter and mess of a sump, I recommend Octopus HOB skimmers. This one has a chamber for a heater, temp and PH probes, and if needed a mesh bag of GFO or carbon in a sleek package.

First skimmer, love it
Love the dimensions, cup is easily accessible and am not having any problems with micro-bubbles. Not too noisy but I believe with a hose attached to the silencer I can make it even more quiet. IF I were to write a review on the instruction sheet that was included, well, it would be barely a half of a star. Lucky I knew this before purchasing.

great for the price
Took me over 3 hours to get the thing running, the instructions did not match the product! Pulls out a lot of skimmate but the pump is loud. If you don't mind messing around with setting it up and having a semi loud pump then go for it!

Best HOB skimmer available!!
This skimmers works very well and is nicely built. My only complaint is the small collection cup. I have to empty the cup 2-3 times every day.
