I have tried three different skimmers for my biocube 29 and this One I the best quality and function of all the skimmers I tried. This skimmer was able to fit it in the first chamber of the sump, and probably the largest skimmer you can get to fit in this position. It is well made and does work but with that being said. I had great success with this skimmer for the first 3 months. Nitrates were always at zero and everything was functioning great. I have added a lot of creatures since I got the skimmer and now it is just not enough to control my bio load in the tank. So if you are looking for something that will help control your nitrates at low level of stocking this will probably do it for you. It requires regular cleaning as the pump will become clogged and if you do not clean it you will burn out the motor. Also it does not require a bubble stone to work like other nano skimmers witch is great. Furthermore, people say they can't get it to skimm, this is often do to salinity as all the nano skimmers are very picky with the salinity of the water. Too high of salinity and you will have to many bubbles and it will skimm clear and fill up very quick. Too low salinity will not create enough bubbles and will not skimm. About 1.024 is the best for most of these skimmers. finally I would like to say that after playing with all the variables of this skimmer, It will not be a thick skim. It will always be a yellow slightly brown color water and really wet. So if you think you are going to get dark thick skimm you won't. But most likely none of your nano skimmers will work for a thick skimm. So if you want a skimmer that will help control some nitrates this is the one but it is not the solution to all your problems.
Like I said my bio load is to high for this skimmer so I am going to remove the skimmer and try something else.
At this point I have realized that you can not get a good skimmer for a nano cube, this one is the best so far, but it does not happen in the small area that you have.
The solution I have came to is a refugium and a canister external filter. The refugium it is very simple to make, very cheap and works a lot better without near the effort of a skimmer. I will not be wasting any more time with nano skimmers and I would recommend that you do the same for your nano cube. Save money have better results and less effort its a win solution.
Thanks for reading I hope this helped you out with your adventure,
I put the Hydor in and plugged it in and it is VERY quiet and it has ZERO micro bubbles! It was producing skim mate within the first 15 minutes! The collection cup is very easy to take off and clean too. It is awesome and I am very impressed. Much better then the Innovative marine skimmer.
Con's-I've got one of the noisy ones that can be heard at the other end of the house, mounting requires you remove four inches of the black tank trim where you place the skimmer, although the skimmer works well it doesn't remove the surface water, at least not with the grills centered on the water surface. Requires a very small brush to clean the ends of the skim cup.
