Eheim Skim350 Surface Skimmer Skim350 (Mfg# 3536310)
Crystal clear water surface!
The output from my filter flows through a CO2 reactor before entering the tank, so I direct the return flow down toward the plants to maximize the flow of CO2-rich water. This meant I had very little surface movement, which resulted in a 'scum'; a white skin formed on the water surface between weekly water changes. This looked ugly and probably reduced water surface air exchange. I now run the Eheim 350 surface skimmer at night and the water surface stays crystal clear through the day. My Harlequin Rasboras and Golden Cloud Mountain Minnows appear to enjoy the flow from the skimmer at night.

eheim 350 surface skimmer
I have 100gal Tank salt water with a near max bio load most of my fish require feeding twice daily so I need a good skimmer. I don't use a sump I use two Eheim Ultra G160's I have had a number of hank on skimmers for one reason or another they fail or over flow in the middle of the night and are a pain to clean. This Eheim skimmer is by far better than any skimmer I have use. Goes into tank and iy has a block of filter material which is totally reusable it does a GREAT job I run two of them only because of my tank size beleave me it collect a lot of uneaten food and other slime I find that I need to rinse out the pad about once a week on average and you can make pads from foam blocks you cut to size for finer skimming. Leave it to Eheim to get a great idea and run with it.Oh one last comment you can adjust the flow three different out puts.

This product works good
We had a bad algae bloom in our tank and the surface of the water was green. The item arrived and we installed it and it cleared up the tank. We would recommend this item for small tanks. It works great.
