Skimz SK181 - Excellent Skimmer Review by Paul
I have had this running for 2 weeks now on a 90 gallon with 40 breeder. It was packaged really well and shipped very quick. When i plugged it in I was a little worried because the pump seemed kind of loud. After two days, I opened up the pump, took out the impeller and put it back and plugged her back up. After this it was dead silent. Not sure what I did, but I can literally not hear it run at all now. It was a little finicky for about 3 days while breaking in, but by about day 5 it really started pulling out some nasty nasty. I am 100% satisfied with this skimmer. Just make sure you give it a week to fully get going and if it sounds loud, open up the pump and reseat the impeller. Thanks Skimz and aquacave! (Posted on 5/2/2012)
Very well constructed Review by binford4000
Very well constructed,easy to assemble and to adjust. Great little skimmer for the buck. pulled average skim for about a week for the pump to break in then it really pulled skim out. (Posted on 9/23/2011)
Skimz 181 kone Review by saltnic
Well package and well built
works great pulling gunk in the first hour,right out of the box.
Does not pull as much compared to my EuroReef RC 180 but will do well for a 100 gallons.
Easy to assemble and very quite not as loud as EuroReef skimmer.

Skimz it does... Review by Jim
Got this skimmer a month ago to replace my aging G2 skimmer. Wow, what a difference.. my old skimmer takes a week to fill a cup full of brown gunk and my new skimmer does it in 3-4 days.. It also did not take that long to break in (one week)... (Posted on 5/11/2011)
