All 20g with Skimmers, step inside....

-What skimmer do you run, and what made you choose that particular skimmer?

-How does your skimmer perform? Any advantages(eg. low phosphates) or drawbacks(eg. microbubbles)?

-How much skimmate does it pull out - daily/weekly?

Post your set-ups!

OK, so 1 vote for a Prizm.......who else is running what?

Anyone running a CSS, Bak-pak, or Odyssea skimmer on their 20's?

I have a CSS 65.. great skimmer for the money! I ran one on a 20 for a while and it did fine.. only drawback was the size of the pump in the main. If you can run a sump i'd suggest it.. more water volume and gets the skimmer out of the main.

i have a 20 and i run an aqua c remora. there are some microbubbles, but they are supposed to go way after it breaks in, which i havent had it long, so..... it barely takes up any space, which is nice for a 20. it seems to be a very good skimmer so far. i would reccommend it.

Nice. Aqua C's reputation preceeds it. Isn't a Bak-pak very similiar to an Aqua C?
