Red Sea Prizm

Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on these? What would a comparable item be (of similar size, clearance room behind tank, etc)? TIA

Andy

I had one for 3 days. It suked comparing to other skimmers that i've used (AquaC Remora PRO, Coralife Super Skimmer 125). AquaC Remora skimmers have the same size as the Prizm does. They are good skimmers but a bit pricey. I personally would recommend the Coralife Super Skimmer. It's cheap (not expensive), solid, and works great.

I used a Prism Deluxe for a few years then upgraded to a CSS125. It worked OK. Huge difference in size, so if you don't have alot of room, you may have less options. As FishFrik said, the remora is a good choice for limited space.

Thanks. I am helping someone out, and their Prizm is not working. I think I will recommend the AquaC Remora, and hopefully it will fit. It's a tight fit between the tank and the wall. Any other suggestions?

I am also thinking of buying the AquaC Remora. How noisy is it?

I got a used Remora PRO. I think it's been used for almost 2 years. I gotta tell you... it's really lousy! Maybe it's just mine but if i would to start over... i would use a CSS

The Prizm has been replaced by the Remora. So far, so good. Much nicer quality than the Prizm as well.
