the aqua c remora is a good hob. i would suggest this first for a hob. there are also a few aqua c in sump modles including the Urchin wich is the same as the remora but in sump. cpr also sells good skimmers (the bak pak hob) and sells some insump to.

I do not reccomend the SeaClone. I do suggest the AquaC Remora or CPR BakPak.

I have a fairly small sump, but I bought a ETSS Evolution 500 (www.superskimmer.com) and is rated one of the best protein skimmers around. It's a little tall, but the footprint is only 7" and it can pump to 500 gallons an hour. I had a Berlin and it was crap compared to this thing....
