Product Description

Size: 300-400 gal

Elegant and easy to use, the Hydor PERFORMER skimmer range is built with high precision CNC machined parts made with top quality materials for versatile applications in marine and reef aquariums. The PERFORMER is a complete skimmer package that includes a foaming pump, a venturi silencer, and a special drainage system. The new SELTZ foaming pump is equipped with a new lubrication system and an innovative ROTORMIX brush impeller. Thanks to the use of our new SELTZ pumps, PERFORMER skimmers guarantee super-efficient water circulation and foaming, disappearance of particulate matter, high air concentration in the main chamber, very low noise level and low energy consumption. The PERFORMER skimmer range is equipped with a special drainage system that can regulate the level in the chamber without changing the quantity of water that that is being treated. This range also comes with an air regulating system that controls the air input allowing the end-user to adjust the skimmer to specific personal needs.

I got the 705 for my 120 with 30 gallon sump. Works good for me. Nothing was damaged do to shipping. Level in skimmer will go up and down if the level in the sump doesn't stay stable could be a few different reasons for that. My skimmer didn't run to good the first few weeks then I have not had any problem's since then.
Up grading tank to a 300 with 100 gallon sump and thinking about getting the 2005 or the 3005 model not to sure yet still have a few weeks to make up my mind. Really good price for what you get compared to some other brands out there.

I have been running a 505 performer on my 92g corner tank for the past year. It replaced an Eshopps s120 cone skimmer. The Eshopps worked fairly well but I wanted to go the recirculating skimmer route. The 505 is definitely at least a +1 up size skimmer for me but I want great water quality for my sps dominant tank. So far I have nothing bad to say about the skimmer or pumps. You do need to supply a pump to feed the skimmer so don't forget. I went with the recommended one. The have held up well so far and are supposedly upgraded from the older style that gave people headaches.

The skimmer body is very thick for a skimmer this size and feels thicker than the acrylic of my sump. The body is big enough that I can stick my hand down the neck into the body for cleaning. It feels like you would have to stomp on it to cause damage. The footprint is also pretty small for a recirculating skimmer which was a plus over other brands. The collection cup is huge compared to others I have owned. I like the sliding lock ring that holds it in place. Union valves are present to help with tearing it down and the o-rings and seals are high quality. The feed pump has adjustable flow, and the air mixture and water height are also easily adjusted. It is great not having to worry about water levels in the sump affecting the skimmer performance. Of coarse, one of the best features is the price of this skimmer that has a lot of the features of much more expensive ones and is just as good of quality. Another great quality is the noise level of this thing. The skimmer is usually the first thing you hear on peoples' tanks and that noise is irritating. The pumps on the 505 truly are as quiet as they claim. My automatic top off pump is louder than the two skimmer pumps.

I just received the skimmer yesterday so I can't comment on it's performance, but it looks like a good unit.

The comment I will make is that it doesn't come with a water pump. I spent about 1/2 hour looking at the documentation online before I purchased trying to determine what else I need. I would have liked to have it indicated that a pump was not included. Frustrating to have to re-order parts later.

I believe that this has the potential to be a great skimmer, however, I'm not sure I will ever know. I have a problem with the skimmer maintaining a consistent water level in the tank, going back and forth every minute or so between staying where it should be and them dropping 5 inches before returning. So the problem is that the water level doesn't stay high enough to skim on a consistent basis. I'm guessing that it's not a big deal to fix, but the Hydor web site (nice looking but no useful content) has no info in it's forums, and a call to the USA phone number was met with a message to not call them, but to submit a message through the web site, which I have done and am waiting foe someone to call that hopefully I can explain the problem to and get some ideas. I wanted this type of skimmer because it did not have to be placed at a certain height, and didn't have to be in the sump. (I have the 3005 model). What little time is skims successfully, it is awesome, but that's not very often. If I manage to solve the issue I believe it will be great, but with no access to customer service I don't know what to try next.

Initially I had purchased a Performer 2005 and received it broken. Apparently it took a hard hit somewhere in the shipping process to Amazon and the whole body was shattered and in pieces. Called Amazon and they were wonderful (as usual, that is why I am a Prime Member and try to ONLY buy through Prime). They immediately sent out the 3005 because they had no more 2005's in stock and I needed a skimmer for my 450 gallon tank. Got the 3005 and the top of the collection cup was cracked all the way through around where the cap attached to the circular underside. OK, that was not a deal breaker since the skimmer could function with the cap cracked. Set up the unit and waited for the break in period which is usually no longer than a week. Called Hydor and they told me that it could take up to 10 days. By the 10th day it was still doing nothing. Called Hydor again and they told me to take the sponge out of the Seltz pump which was running it. Well then it decided to overflow all over the place...I had 5 gallons of water all over the room, so I called them again and they said it should not do that, then they decided that there must have been an error in lining up the outlet valve so the markings on the unit did not correspond with the amount of water it was letting out. Then it decided to go from nothing to overflowing Again and dumped out another 5 gallons on the floor. At that point I had had enough and called Amazon who cheerfully issued the call tag and is issuing a full refund.
