Sealife Systems Trickle Filters

Does anyone know anything about these? Good or bad?

Also, the reason I am asking is because I just bought an Oceanic "Custom Shop" 46 gallon tall....square, black oak, black cabinet, standard lighting...
Decided it would be a perfect seahorse upgrade tank
No..I didn't need it, but the price was more than right. The LFS guy bought out the oceanic booth at a trade show and no one would even look at this tank in his shop. It listed for 400...I gave him 200. He was trying to sell me this trickle filter for 150 bucks, it just did not seem quite right to me. It did have a built in skimmer though.

*anyone know of a "saltwater hobbyist anonymous" in Louisiana?*

Sealife systems tends to undersize their wet/drys a bit IMO, but they are fairly well made and do a decent job. I have never cared for the builtin protien skimmer, IMO you'd be better off saving the money on the upgrade and getting a seperate skimmer.
