remora skimmers are FAR from the best. octopus, MSX, and SWC skimmers are all good buys. aqua-c's remora line are worthless IMO.

I love the octopus BH 100 that I have for my 55. It seems to pull out alot of gunk and started working in 30 mins i.e the break in period. I've never had any other skimmer before so...

When I upgrade to a 55 a few years from now I'm going to try my hand at making my own protein skimmer. At the end of the day, all it does is make a bunch of foam and funnel it into a collection cup. I have a few innovations I'd like to add hehe.
