I have the BM Nac 66, went between these two and decided on this one due to it fitting a bit better in the sump. Great skimmer, took all of three days to break in and I'm pulling stuff out I didn't even know was in their. I have to clean the cup out ever four to five days before I added a sewer line drain for it.

Easy to fine tune and get settled in? Now i found the curve 7. Its a bit cheaper, only uses one pump and its built into the body. Idk which one to go with but im certain im going with BM. Thank you for the input

Extremely easy to fine tune, I set the original to get it broken it and have only adjusted maybe 10 times in the 6 months I've had it. I may have just gotten lucky by picking the right setting, but the water height I looked up and just glued and stand for it to sit on. The dual pump is nice too and produces a crazy amount of bubbles. Nice thing is none really come out of the skimmer, it produces very little skim bubbles in the sump.

Also the pumps and skimmer are all on one platform/base. The pumps aren't sitting on the side putting pressure on the acrylic. Very well built and the thing weighs prob close to 20-25 lbs.

I have a BM 180 EX. I think it's an excellent skimmer for the money. I just recently purchased a Seaside Aquatics ES2 for a tank I maintain. Another awesome skimmer. I like the Sicce PSK1000. Very efficient pump.

Yeah, I don't wanna spend the money on it personally but still a cool feature.
