mythin I got mine in today, its not that big at all, fits nicely in my 45-p, got it for 33 shipped to my door, might have been a pricing mistake. Its nice that it adds additional flow to the tank as well, cleaned my surface scum in 30 minutes, noticed more pearling from plants today. Absolutely quite once i adjusted the output down some. So far so good, good product and price.

freph Pre-ordered mine. $43.99 after shipping for those who were wondering. They extended the pricing to 5/31 as well. The guy said the next order would probably be in and ready near the end of the first week of June.

Edit: After adjusting my Vuppa 3-4 times daily, I suddenly want more of these.....ADA has a horrible concept for a skimmer.

I have not create a journal yet ... perhaps later, it take a slow start for this tank up to this point.

Thanks ... I might move to other side of the tank, the flow output on the eheim skim350 is not that strong however, and i have the spray bar on the other end, leave little space for eheim skim 350 on the front part corner.
I might still need a koralia to flow things better to reach to the other end.

geesantoz the one i use on the picture has rio attachment on the output flow. this is just to flow on certain direction for my case.
if looking at side by side, the drop checker is bulkier ...
It has sponge filter within, it may need to be clean time to time, but the debris is trapped and not flowed back to the output.

I had the Vuppa, theres not really anything you can improve on besides not having to adjust the thing daily. That is the one advantage of the eheim.
