Advice on skimmer and heater

I need to buy a very small skimmer to fit under my tank in the sump. I found one on ebay called the jebo 2003.

Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2366483484

and here is the heater, it is a emperor 300watt

Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2366483554

Any advice on these would be great.

Thanks,
Josh

I use ebo-jager heaters in all of my tanks, and recommend them highly. Also, an under $25 skimmer would concern me a bunch.

I would be leery of both of those products. I have never used either of them, but I know that cheap heaters usually end up frying something. I don't think you're going to get much of a skimmer for $20 either...JMHO.

What protein skimmer would you suggest, I need one that is no larger than 20"?

Is 20" all the room you have? You'll need some room to remove the collection cup on most skimmers. You could, if you have a total of 24", use an Aqua C Urchin. An Aqua C EV120 is 18". Several of the Euro Reef skimmers are 20". What size tank is it?
As for heaters, I like the Won Pro Heat and Pro Heat II's. They are, IMO, the best value on a heater available now.

I like the Ebo Jager heaters as well.. Very nice and work great.. Extremely Accurate.. The Won heaters I hear are good too but I have never used one as of yet... I read that the Wons died after a short period of time when i was researching heaters... I could find nothing but Great comments about the Ebo Jager heaters..

HTH,
James
