That is way too open a question (no offense). If you can tell me more about your tank and what you want to keep in it, I should be able to help you.

Describe your tank (and it's system) and I'm sure there are plenty here that can help you.

I agree. There are skimmers that are in general better than others though at a decent price for what u get. The Super an Diablo series skimmers by Reef Octopus are supposed to be very good.

actually guys i made up my mind and am going to go with the: Reef Octopus Diablo DCS300 rated at 600gal because i plan to overstock.

i plan on a reef tank with over 30fishes. mostly anthias and chromeses... pair of clowns,2-3yellow tangs, one blue hippo tang. and maybe a naso. foxface is also in the mix but still undecided. also maybe a reef safe trigger.
