Best Skimmer?

I am currently using Prizm skimmer man it is loud am thinking of switching to something else.

Are all motorised skimmer produce the same noise or it is just Prizm? I think airstone will be different but not sure how loud the air pump will be?

I want a hang on type for my 20 gal.

Guys which protein skimmer will you recommend? I need to change it as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

I have always had the Aqua C Remora Pro and have been very happy. Does a great job. Fairly reasonable price too.

I have a coralife super skimmer, the one rated for 65 gallons. And I couldn't be happier with the results it gives me.

Just don't touch berlins or seaclones, they suck without heavy modding.

I dont think the modifications on the seaclone are enough to make them work well (by design), all in all.. I would avoid it at all costs..

I too use the CSS 65 for my 26 gal. It is pretty quiet. Much quieter than the CPR BakPak I used to use and it produces much more quality skimmate. The only drawback is that it tames up a lot of space in the tank.
