Marineland's new In-sump Protein Skimmer

Well I dove in and purchased a Marineland new in-sump protein skimmer. There are only 2 models a 100g version and a 300g version. I purchased the 2nd model because I have a 125g tank that has a lot of corals and animals.
Well so far it seems to be working well. LOTS of bubbles!
Instructions say it will take 5 days to adjust finally to my water conditions.
Day 1 - I needed to open up the flow to surpass their recommended level of water. Already within a couple of hours the level and the bubbles are starting to reach the top.
Cleaning is once a month.
Price, footprint and a needle wheel impeller were the determining factors in my getting this unit.
I'll keep you guys posted.

Actually Orayay,
It works extremely very well!
I do keep it clean with a once a month cleaning.
Just one thing though that seems to be a good addition and that is an ATO unit of some sort.
I do not have one yet but will be getting one in Aug.
You have a choice of keeping the gunk wetter or dryer. I keep mine wetter and seems to pull out more IMO.
Are you thinking of getting one?

Yeah I purchased the 100 model about three weeks ago, works wonderful and it is so simple to use and I love the space saving design! Fits nicely in my sump.
