I have a prizm that I can't stand. It becomes very noisy. I have to keep adjusting it and cleaning it to stop the noise. I am limited on space and would probably need the remora. How is your remora working? Is it quiet compared to the prizm? I just wanted to ask someone who had both skimmers. Thanks!

Another CSS 125 vote. Cheap (barely $100 online), and solid, as long as you keep the water level stable, and clean the collection cup each time you dump it.

I have been running a prizm for a few dats now and it seems to be doing a good job. It is loud though, I keep thinking the dishwasher must be going

Actually, I will be one of the dissenting voices here. I have one and it works well for me. It is quiet enough (the one with the 18 blade impeller) and pulls allot of gunk out of the water. Mine is set up and produces a nice dry foam.

Does it take a little more attention and tuning than others, probably, but aren't you paying attention to something on your aquarium at least once or twice a day (food, lights, top-offs). Not too much to add the water adjustment to this list.

Works fine, no complaints.
