PLEASE VOTE! Which SKIMMER should i get?

I've got a 60 gallon salt tank w/150 pounds of live rock, 2 inches argonite, a wet/dry filter thats been converted into a submersed rubble rock filter, a refugium, a UV Sterilizer, and 260 watt power compacts.

I intend to turn this into a reef tank. I need a protein skimmer, which one should i get? I've researched for hours and narrowed it down to TWO choices.

Euro-Reef CS6-1

&

AquaC EV-120

i have only heard this but from numerous sources that the aquaC needs tweeked and worked with before it skims like crazy whereas the euroreef is more like a plug and go type setup. my lfs uses pretty much straight euroreefs on his tanks and they definitely get the job done, just make sure you have room for the either skimmer before you purchase it though cause i think both of them are pretty bulky.

I would go ER myself... I have one and it kicks arse. Quiet, well built... but then again, I haven't tried the EV120. Maybe buy them both, see which one you want, and return the other one? lol

it's all a matter of opinion... they are both great skimmers just depends on if you are a person that likes to plug it and go or if you like to tweak it to your preference.
