Protein skimmer

I use a Reef Octopus Bh-1000 hang on back protein skimmer on my 29g reef. You wont find a better skimmer for the price and size. Its rated up to 100g but you will see better results on tanks in the 29-55g range which i think it suits best. I believe i got mine for around $165

I have a 55gal tank and I have a sea clone 150 and I have read reviews in this with people saying its cheap and not good, it is cheap and works great! My buddy has had one and his dad has had one for years.

That's exactly y I bought it bc it was cheaper, I'm not looking to break the bank on this hobby lol, I'm satisfied so far with it( I've had it for about 2 months) buddy, years.

I found researching is the best thing to do!!!
