Good Skimmer?!!

What brand slimmer should I get for a 40gal with a 20gal tall sump? I have a CPR HOB with a rio 1400 pump on it right now, but want to upgrade...

I use deltec. I'm sure there are differing opinions on all skimmers but from personal experience I am unable to fault mine.

Yep deltec here too. They may cost a bit, but in my experience you get what you pay for. Buy cheap, buy twice is my motto.

Yep, I made the mistake of buying cheap and bought twice.

Won't make that mistake again.

Had a tmc first and it was awful.

I have a seaclone skimmer. It is garbage. Get a coralife one, I have heard really good things.
