The only thing I've read consistent with what I've experienced is that they don't skim dry... they produce a pretty wet skimmate. I don't see that as a bad thing, but you do have to keep an eye on water level/salinity if you run it wet.
With that said though, I'm in the process of getting a different skimmer. The Remoras have the feed pump in the main tank, and I'm just getting tired of having it eat up tank real estate. That, and the fact that the Mag3 pump I have on mine tends to get persnickety from time to time has led
me to see what a different skimmer will do for me. If Warner Marine can EVER get their new H2X skimmer to market (it's only been delayed 8 months now...), I'm going to give that a try. It's definitely a pricier skimmer than the Remora, but for your size tank, you might look at the H1 model - it's designed for smaller tanks. Not sure what the price is on that.
