    Hydor Slim-Skim Performer Nano 135.35
    Feefo Logo
    Slightly bigger than expected although the dimensions are correct on the website.
    I like the rubber/magnetic suction cups to hold it in place.
    Requires some assembly but it's really easy & takes less than 5 minutes.
    A nice quiet skimmer, so would be great if the aquarium is in a bedroom.
    Adjustments are made by moving a rubber band on the collection cup up or down.
    But 4 days in and this is collecting some really rich dark Skimate.
    Build quality is fantastic, it's housed in a dark black acrylic plastic, which you can still see through to see when it needs cleaning.
    For the first couple of days there was the production is micro bubbles in the display area of the aquarium, but these have decreased dramatically now.
    The only negative point is its size, it's not really slim as the name suggests. So if you have a really small nano, then maybe there are better alternatives.
    Overall it works really well.

    Upgraded from the tunze 9004 skimmer to the hydor 250 skimmer,
    Excellent skimmer only a few micro bubbles when you first start to run the skimmer in but after a few days none.
    Rather tall for my tank but does its job excellently highly recommend for any reef tank with no sump..
