Looks like a piece of crap to me. A Chinese knock-off of the Coralife SuperSkimmer. Also, who knows what kind of pump it includes, but the pump runs on 220v, not regular house current 120v.

$$$ is a good indication of quality when it comes to your skimmer. If you can get it for $14 then chances are it is not a good skimmer. Do some research on the web about skimmers and compare them yourself. You will see a few brands consistantly on top of the list. Look into one of those. A skimmer is not a place to cut corners when setting up your tank.
