Opinions on Lily Pipe Skimmers?

Hi all,

Thinking about starting up a high tech planted tank again after several years with no tanks. Looks like there have been some changes in the planted tank community with new equipment vendors and options which is great... back in my hayday it was basically ADA or nothing if you wanted a nice clean look.

Anyway - does anyone have any opinions on the glass lily pipe inflows with skimmers built in? Definitely a new one to me and I remember several of my high tech tanks suffering from a biofilm with high dosing and high lighting.

Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/JARDLI-Surfac.../dp/B01LZ2DV9W

Do they work, or are they extremely finicky/not worth the extra space they take up? I'm looking at a 23 gal Landen rimless tank, probably will do a Fluval canister filter, which should be plenty powerful to drive the thing, if it indeed works.

Any opinions are welcome! thanks!
