what made you decide to upgarde from your old skimmer, and what kind of skimmer was that one?
Well, I upgrade because the Remora has a bit smaller profile and should look a bit better. Also, in theory, the Remora should be impossible to overflow. And, I just HAD to try one
When I am torn between two choices, I always end up trying both of them for myself.
The "old' skimmer is an Advanced Aquaria Excalibur HV1. For the money, I think the Excalibur is a better deal. This may change if the Remora start pulling out more skimmated than the Excalibur.
