This customer purchased the item at our site.
It worked pretty well until I started feeding a blend of frozen seafood.
After that it regularly has problems. Things like splattering out the holes in the top and lifting the collection cup lid and overflowing bubbles on the floor.
Unfortunately the drain on the side of the collection cup is pretty much useless, it always overflows before pushing anything out this. If this worked better and it had a taller collection cup it would probably work for me.

@Jason That is not an issue skimmer. You are simply overfeedin. Frozen is very dirty and if you over feed just a little, it will cause the skimmer to react to the large change in water chemistry.

Advantages: Easy to setup
Runs silently
Can produce good quality skimmate

Disadvantages: Some food will cause it to overflow
Drain on collection cup seems to not work
Hard to clean narrow spots in collection up

This customer purchased the item at our site.
Skimmer is easy to assemble, doesn't install on rimmed aquariums, unless you do some modifications, as I did.
Quite a bit of microbubbles, I added a piece of tubing and a ventri, from my seaclone skimmer to the air intake and was able to dial in the skimmer to limit the microbubbles. This also make breaking in the cup much easier.
Also, I added foam to the intake line to clean the water, and help with bubbles.

Advantages: Great looking skimmer
Looks like it should do well

Disadvantages: Needs a ventri to adjust air intake, plus it helps make the skimmer more quiet than it already is, and it's super quiet.
No foam added for the intake
