I used to have a Seaclone 100 and it was worthless compared to my ASM skimmer. Of course, I wouldn't reccomend an ASM for you because they're for in sump only (and they're massive). But I have heard good things about the bakpak.

Simply put, having a good skimmer is the single most important investment in your tank. The better the skimmer, the better your water quality (specifically nitrates and phosphates). Your water will stay cleaner, and cleaner for longer......I can now get by with doing fewer water changes less frequently because my nitrates stay undetectable all of the time.

less DOC=less no3. The new sea clone is getting better reviews then the old which was pretty worthless for most people. The Aqua C Pro is going to be less hassle once it’s dialed in and will skim more then the sea clone.

If it was like a car it would be like comparing a Lamborghini to a Honda civic. Both will do the job but ones going to be a lot quicker with better performance.

Any skimmer is better then none in my book but why spend X amount of money on a skimmer you might not be happy with when a little more ensures a better result?

As you know nothing in this hobby is really cheap and skimping on the quality of a product usually costs more in the long run. (like my mistake of spending $$ on PC lighting and wanting MH now )

Like Dr.Nate, I had a Seaclone and found it worthless as well.
When I upgraded to a Remora HOT I saw a big difference in the water clarity. Clearer water means better light penetration, along w/ better overall water quality.

That is one of the great things about Remora's, there's nothing to mess with. The "injector" is internal. No need to dial it in-just plug and play.
