What do you guys think of the Amiracle Protein Skimmers?

What do you guys think of the Amiracle Protein Skimmers? I'm thinking of purchasing the Hurricane, Venturi Skimmer for my 75 Gallon thank. I'm already going to the purchase the Amiracle Slim Line 250 Wet/Dry filter.

Stay away from that skimmer. Get an AquaC Remora skimmer. Its one of the best HOB skimmer for a long haul.

Thank you for the input. I'm so new to this whole process, it's difficult to know what to get and what brand to get.

If you stick with an AquaC skimmer you will be very happy you did!

don't want to hi-jack ur thread, however, if i may, i would like to ask a question...

i have an aquac ev-180 sump type protein skimmer. most say that the sump type skimmers would be better than an HOB like the remora. why is that? sometime i think it is a real hassle to mess with my ev-180 in my sump within my stand.
