PROTEIN SKIMMER

I was wondering what does everyone think of the CPR BakPak 2R protein skimmer for a 40 gallon tank?

Not all of us are lucky enough to have a sump though! Want to donate one to me?

Jay,

That's exactly what I run on my 40gallon breeder. One recommendation though: replace the Rio with a Maxi Jet 1200. You'll need a little $5 adapter.
I have a thread on this pump upgrade: http://aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=45581
