Protein Skimmer advise

Can anyone tell me if this would be a good skimmer for a 55 gal?

Stay away from that skimmer. The only thing good about that is it came with a MJ 1200 PH. JMO. Save your money and get an AquaC Remora.

The seaclone has improved in the past years. I bought a 150 for my tank and all it needs is a little adjusting. Its a good skimmer for the price. If you cant afford to get a better get this one. Its better then nothing.

Cheapest skimmer I'd ever buy is a CPR bak-pak, and then I suggest upgrading to the 1200 maxi-jet because the Rio600 ain't all that great.

I bought this same skimmer for my 72 gal and I never got it to work right. I battled with it for a month and all it did was pump tiny bubbles into my tank. It never skimmed anything. Save your money until you can aford a better one.
