Awesome on day 1 Review by kenny from Iowa
So, I though I would give a quick review of a new skimmer I received. I did a lot of researching and I decided on the Skimz (SKIMZ SM 161 Monzter E-Series) skimmer from aquacave. Reason for choosing this skimmer was the very, very low power consumption(13w) from a Italian made skimz pump. Also, if I ever decide(when I decide I should say) to upgrade my aquarium to a 220 this will still be big enough to handle the total water volume of that system. This will be running on my 180 with a total water volume of 255 gallons including my sump. I purchased it on a Sunday and had it by Tuesday afternoon. Right out of the box I could tell it had a thick manufacturing film on it so next step was into a vinegar bath. All parts took about a 12 hour bath in a very light vinegar bath and then got a real good rinse. Putting it together was a snap as the instructions were very easy to follow. From the reviews that I had read break in period was roughly 3-5 days so I wasn't expecting much from it for the first few days. (Posted on 4/29/2014)
