    I have the Excalibur HV 200 hang-on version. Now, I can say I am happy with it. It took a long time before it seemed to work right (break in period). The rio 1700 that came with it did not last very long (around two-three months). It seized after I cleaned the skimmer and the pump. I tried to get it started again, got very very frustrated and smashed it into a number of pieces. The funny thing is the case and lots of pieces are broken, but it now works again. The skimmer is now setup with a MAG 7 and I am thinking of upgrading to a better venturi valve. All and all the skimmer works well.

    If I could go back, I would not have purchased this skimmer. I would have looked into something much larger. When I was researching I was trying to get the largest skimmer that my budget would allow. I did, but I feel it is not enough.

    It is setup on a 90gal with 50gal sump and 50gal refugium.
