Great bang for your buck
By D. Steverson on August 27, 2013 11 of 11 people found this review helpful I needed a skimmer with a small footprint for my 90g reef (with 20g sump). The region within my sump the skimmer must sit is extremely small, and so i attempted the bend 5 according to cost point and Size. I have only been with them running for 48 hrs now, but listed here are my primary ideas:
- Its rated for approximately 140g, which normally means it may easily handle as much as around 70-80, but within the situation from the curve 5, I believe which may be pretty accurate. It certainly skims out lots of gunk within my setup and time will inform whether it's sufficient in my purpose. I'd have loved to visit a bit bigger and obtain the C7 to become safe and sound, but knowing because when now this factor is skimming at this time, going bigger may have been a total waste of money.
- It's SUPER quiet.
- It's very efficient, with an 8w pump (when compared with my last pump that was 28w and did not appear to skim out 1/4 of what this factor collects).
- It's small footprints causes it to be very versatile.
- It's made from thick acrylic and seems very sturdy
Overall, I am extremely pleased using the skimmer. I'll update this publish basically encounter any problems afterwards, but to date I'd provide a 5 from 5.1 Comment Was this review useful for you?

6 of 6 people found this review useful Well-built, easy cleaning through the removable body, easy adjustment, Quiet and most significantly, skimming great. I've this running on my small 90 gallon reef with 30 gallon sump, and it's pulling a lot of dark, foul skimmate consistently. I clean the cup every weekend since it is usually almost full. This is actually the worst smelling skimmate I have ever experienced when cleaning, wafting with the house and singing nose hairs with reckless abandon. I ought to observe that the required height for level is certainly off. When placed at 9.5" this factor just overflows despite the drain available. I simply cut some PVC pipe and used all of them with some acrylic sheet to boost it greater within my sump. I've it at 7" water and level 2 around the skimmer drain and it appears to become working perfectly there. I might try shedding it one inch to spread out the drain up more later on.3 Comments Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

4 of four people found this review useful This skimmer was simple to assemble and was skimming out gunk in 6 hrs of start-up. I've been with-out a skimmer happening 2 days which means this would be a blessing it works very well. also, another a few things i like relating to this skimmer. It's very quiet and can't be also heard when compared with my last skimmer, I've got a 20 gallon sump which with this particular skimmers small feet print fits perfectly, the drain plug aids in easy draining as the sump is constantly on the run. My tank is really a 50 gallon fish/reef tank which means this skimmer may well be a little over kill, but I do not think you could ever over skim a fish tank. Disadvantage: None. would differently recommend to some friend.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

3 of three people found this review useful Works as marketed and is doing a fantastic job since setting it up. I'll note to new users, it will require about two to three days for that skimmer to begin producing skimmate. In that "break in / seasoning" period Used to do need to raise up within the sump over the suggested level because it would certainly add too much and constantly overflow the gathering cup. Once moved in, It really works wonderfully.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.

5 of 6 people found this review useful I've had a few other skimmers from well-known brands which were very difficult in relation to pump stability, setting stability, and skimmate production. I purchased the Bubble Magus Curve 5 and soon after days of having it dialed in, it's labored flawlessly with excellent skimmate production and very stable setting.
The max recommendation for that skimmer is 150 gallons, By size and pump size it is really most likely ideal for aquariums no larger than 75 gallons if you're seriously interested in keeping sensitive corals and a good bioload. I've mine on the 60 cube and It's roughly exactly the same size and same pump output because the previous skimmers which were rated to 100gallons or fewer.Comment Was this review useful for you?

2 of two people found this review useful VERY quiet, Small footprint. Im getting skimmate therefore it seems to become working.
Side Notes:
In the suggested 25cm water height, the skimmer would overflow no matter settings. I elevated it to around 7.5" and its good now.
The dial settings really are a bit confusing. MAX really lowers the bubble height, MIN raises it. You'd think the alternative.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

2 of two people found this review useful Therefore it is been forty-five minutes because it switched it on and it's skimming awesome already. I've got a NAC 3 running before therefore it wasn't a poor skimmer whatsoever I simply wanted a little more power. The bend 5 looks sexy and Sleek and is effective. I had been so impressed I needed to write an evaluation. I have never written one before but this skimmer deserves it. Awesome productComment Was this review useful for you?
