i own the prizm, and it is awful, really hard to adjust, it is SUPER loud, and it is not worth the investment. I have not heard very good things about the seaclone, but i have no experience with it. i would say that you should go for a bak pak or another slightly more expensive skimmer from a different site. The larger initial investment will pay itself off later by being far more reliable, and cause you less of a headache.

Check out the octopus line of skimmers. I believe they have a HOB.

AVOID prizm by all costs. Not even worth taking for free!

I am selling my Reef Octopus BH1000 HOB skimmer rated up to 90G. Best skimmer you can get for your dollar by far. Works great, easy to set up and doe sit ever do a fantastic job! If you live in Canada it would be worth buying from me. If not order from Aquarium Supplies, Aquarium Supply, Aquarium Equipment, AquaCave.com Offers, Discount Fish Tanks & Fish Tank Supplies for Saltwater, Marine, Coral Reef Guide, Freshwater Aquarium, free shipping. And this forum is sponsored by them
