Using a remora on a 55g. I would go with an octopus when I get the 125g.

The remora is rated really well for 75g tank so I think I've got good skimming. I have been known tooverfeed so I expect thats the reason for intense skimmate.

i would think that that may be a little small for your 55g. i've done some research and its always recommended you double the system size, so for a 55g atleast a skimmer rated at 110g.

how are your nitrates? could they be lower?
