Came across a eshopps 100 skimmer. Reviews seem to be good. And it will fit the footprint of my sump. Any opinions?

i too am a canadian reefer and there are a few good sites for us Aquarium supplies, saltwater and reef supplies and equipment in Canada - GoReef.com and Your canadian online reef aquarium super store, ReefSupplies.ca are 2 i can think of both out of Montreal

I've used both Eshoppes and the instant ocean, otherwise known as "seaclone" . They are garbage IMO. Anyone who says they are good, doesn't have anything to compare them to.
Looks for air and water intake numbers. The more air and water comes in, the better it will skim....bottom line.
