It has a break in period like any skimmer and I've found that it works better if it's a little skummy. You also have to adjust the air alot before you get it right. Once I got the air right it's been great every since. But it needs the skum on the throat and lid in order for the bubbles to stick and break instead of overflowing. It took several days to build up the stickiness to keep it from overflowing. Now I just rinse the cup out but do not wash it with a brush.

Thanks for the advice and testimonials. I'm gonna be out touring for X-mas for the next few days. It'll give me a couple of days to figure out my next move. Thanks again!

It is not a hob it is definatly either hang inside or in a sump. Maybe you could plumb it for hang on back, but the outflow is a tube next to the main tube and the ph hooks straight to the side of the skimmer. It does not have an uptube to feed water up to the skimmer. It is directly hooked into the side. Also it overflows if not adjusted properly and I would have had many, many messes if it were not in the tank or sump. A ten gallon trash can under the stand is what we have ours in with a hot overflow and return.

Really, what you paid, what you get. I have been using it for about two months on my 75G plus 10G sump. It produced 1/4 inch of skimmate on the first two weeks. Since then, it does not collect any. I can see the bubbles but just does not push high enough to the cup. I followed the instruction and setup the correct water-level. Ended up I added a bag of chemi-pure to the sump. Also, the plastic is cheap, body is bulky, require higher GPH powerhead which adds noise and heat to the tank. I will go for the AquaC when $$$ is ready.

Oh well, suppose I'll just have to do water changes every couple of weeks and throw in a chemi-pure bag until I can afford a decent sump...Thanks again to everyone!
