All skimmers have a break in period and need to be dialed in correctly. Some people don't have the patience but it can be done. Out of the 4 skimmers I've had the remora hang on was the easiest, at least to me, to dial in. My eshopps pulls alot and i mean alot of gunk but took forever to get it perfectly adjusted. lol
Just get a decent quality skimmer and you'll be half way there. the cheap ones are just that, cheap, and can take forever to dial in if you even get that lucky.

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