As far as the quality of the Nyos; it is a really, really nice skimmer. I love the fine tuning that can be done on this thing to get just the right amount of bubbles vs water, the size of the bubbles, and flow rate. Most importantly; it does a great job skimming and this is by FAR the quietest skimmer I have ever heard (or not heard).
I have to agree ..i have the nyos 120 and it has been dead silent and working flawlessly since day one (had it a week after it hit the markets)
I too haven't had a reason to call customer service.
I recommend the nyos

Running the NYOS 160 for over a year have not had one issue with it. Its a beast and also the quietest skimmer I've seen.

I haven't run the NYOS but I've run literally just about every other skimmer out there. I LOVE my deltec SCA 1351.

Why is it the "best skimmer in the market"
There comes a time in this hobby when it's just cheaper to silicone around the windows.

i went with the reef octopus regal 150sss, it comes with a DC pump so it is stupid quiet compare to what i had before. people always told me how a good skimmer makes all the difference, ive never realized that until now. you can see the difference in the reaction chamber how much more bubbles this beast creates compare to my old skimmer. its foaming and dark sludge is pumping out within days of having this skimmer. break in time was about 1-2 days. thank you everyone for their input !!
