Ditto on the prizm. I stopped selling them because i just could not justify making money off something so horribely designed. The AquaC or the Bakpak will do fine,. The aquaC does require less maintenence an is a touch more powerful but they both work nice.

I'm not happy about having one, but the prizm has been doing ok. Lowered my nitrate by 10ppm in 3 days in a 125 or so gallons. Paid $30 for it, so no real complaints.

The remora is quieter than the bak pak. They both produce noise but afte rthey break in the remora is quieter.

I went from a Prizm to the Remora. There is absolutly no comparison.

Save the $60 to $70 you would spend on the Prizm for the Remoa. The Prizm was loud, had to be adjusted every other day, some days would produce no foam, others it would fill the cup with water. I speak from my own expeience, it's 100% junk!

I ordered my Remora from CaptiveReefs and could not be happier. Within 3 days of installation it started producing a nice dry foam and I can barley hear the thing running unless I'm standing next to the tank.

Best $165 dollars I've spent since I purchased my Live Rock from LiveRocks.com

If your 4 month old LR is still base rock, get something to seed it. Garf grunge is awesome. GET THE REMORA. If you want reef you "could" go with the CPR BAK-PAK2R (removes BIO-BALE which is nothing but a nitrate farm) but the technology is outdated. The spray driven induction system of the Remora is unmatched in smaller system skimmers

If you increase the length of the intake air hose (double) it quiets them down a fair amount.

Cheers
