Skimmer question?

Has anybody used this brand of skimmer? The dimensions seem pretty good.

I would have to give that a big no...the diameter is quite small which wont allow it to skim very much.

Plus it does not include a pump.

33 inches high by 6.5 inch diameter doesn't seem that bad to me. I feel in my own opinion the height of the skimmer is more important than the diameter to a certain extent. I'm glad it doesn't come with a pump. I'll just save money not having to replace a crappy pump that come with these inexpensive skimmer's.

True, I didn't see the height. But if you spend $70 on a new pump that puts you at $150. A few more bucks and you can have an octopus NW 200.
