I've had several skimmers, including the much loved reef octopus. I had the least luck with the octopus one though, might just be me since people swear by them. My favorite is the eshopps line of skimmers, they are cheaper and seem to work the best for me. I have 2 of those right now.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I like Bubble Magus products for efficiency and price. I also like Sea Side Aquatics skimmers, as well as Octos.
Judge skimmers by air draw first. This is the most important component.
