has them sittin side by side running is his store ( recirculating skimmers) that are both rated for the same total volume and the Hydor literally blows it out of the water
Lol... Yeah we prob get a little wrapped up on choosing our new toys.... Im actually taking a little break from mounting a shelf under my cabinet that'll house my new skimmer when i finally order it. .,i'll be making a couple of little doors that will cover up the top half of the skimmer/ collection cup etc so you won't be able to see it from the couch.
I really think everyone here ., greg, Keith and myself have each chosen a nice unit that they'll be proud of for quite sometime...Doug's monster jns skimmer is another beautiful unit but my tank or Keith's would never be able to handle such a behemoth skimmer.
I guess you do your research., pay your money and kick back and see what happens.., here again ., im sure there's a million skimmers out there and they will all work just fine..,just pick the one that looks right for YOU and don't look back.
