Looking for a surface skimmer to remove a slight surface film from feeding beef heart and came across the SURF CLEAR SURFACE SKIMMER. At £16.95 delivered it looked a reasonable price and after watching a You tube video review I decided to buy one and try it out. It is a compact unit and has performed very well for the few days I have had it, albeit a little fiddly to set up initially. Longer term the tiny foam filter looks rather flimsy but regular cleaning should keep it in good condition. Two slight negatives, which make we wonder if the manufacturer has tested the unit with fish keepers. The power lead is very short, just over a metre long, which necessitated relocating an extension lead. Secondly when attached to the side of the tank the top of the unit lies just about 15 mm out from the side and if you have a strengthening bar along the side the unit is fitted to you need a clearance of about 12 mm from the water surface to the bar (I suppose I could cut the little handle off the skimmer float which would reduce the necessary clearance to around 6 mm). If the unit had an extension to the suckers to allow it to be held out from the side of the tank past the strengthening bar it would overcome this. The intake flow can be adjusted and it has done an excellent job in removing any surface film, so a positive review.
