Surface Skimmer 4-1/2" x 11-1/2"; 5/8" hose diameter
Clears up water specially the surface
I was having problem with my surface water with dust, but since I installed the surface skimmer and used it as my intake on my Magnum 350, it works like a charm, not only the surface it has intake at the bottom too,

Awesome Product at 5x the Price!
This little device is got to be the best addition to my 150G aquarium I've ever purchased.
I've had this installed for nearly 2-years now and has never let me down.
Just recently I removed it as I'm preparing for a full tear-down and installation of a new custom designed tank.
Within 2-days a film appeared on the surface of the water that was unsightly, blocked lighting, and limited oxygen exchange.
Never realized how efficient and useful this product was until I removed it for only 2-days!
I will always have one of these on my systems.
Great product at a very cheap price.
I'd purchase it at 5x the price.

Best item on website
Easily adjusted, easily adapted, nice black color, flexible intake. Affordable. Easily the best addition to the tank. Only thing that could possibly make it better would be a foam prefilter for people with fry or micro inverts. Easy enough to rig yourself though. It skims the surface and draws from the bottom of the tube, you adjust the intake proportion between the two inlets. I have it on a Magnum HOT Canister, no mods necessary.

I recently purchased this product and attached it to my Aquaclear 50 HOB filter. I am extremely pleased with the product and it works perfectly for my need. It requires a little adjusting to set the skimmer at the right speed. I could not run it on the skimmer alone as my filter had too much draw, causing the skimmer to drop below the surface of the water, also can make a loud gurgling sound if turned up too high. After running the skimmer for a few hours, there was a noticeable change in the surface of the water. Gas exchange was much more efficient, and the surface lacked the usual oily film.
On the downside, which comes with the better gas exchange, I have a much higher evaporation rate in my tank. Overall, I enjoy this product and am glad that I bought and use this product.
