Bubble King dc 180 Oct 20, 2015
Skimmer is completely amazing! It took about a week to break in to produce consistent wet foam, I pulled off a Tunze 9410 from my 120 sps. Tunze is no match for the bubble King! I have mine set to 24 watts, and don't sweat the break in time!

There is almost no information or reviews on these skimmers,so I decided to finally give some others some decision making power that I couldn't find anywhere! I bought this skimmer 2 months ago on sale for $900 which is only a little more than lesser made skimmers. This is my fifth skimmer and it is definitely the best so far. I am using it on a 120 gallon reef. It replaced an Eshopps s-150 cone which actually worked well without constant adjustments,however the sheer volume of skimmate the Bubble King produces is double. The skimmer is virtually silent. I will say that it barely fits in my All-Glass sump#4, so measure carefully. The adjustable pump is nice,however once set I don't think you will ever touch it again. Running mine at 24w. If cost is a factor go with the non-adjustable pump and probably be equally happy! Build quality is second to none(Eshopps skimmer is a joke next to this one) Cup requires very little clearance to unscrew and holds a lot of liquid. One thing not mentioned anywhere is that the pump comes with a little stand that goes under it to make it the correct height to the skimmer body. I thought it would introduce noise but the rubber feet on the pump isolate it perfectly. My suggestion to anyone serious about this hobby, skip the first 4 entry level skimmers and get one of these first.
