I want to know everyones tank size & protein skimmer cho

All the reveiws seem negative on about every protein skimmer I have looked at online. I am battling with the decision on what to purchase for my 46gallon tank. So I thought I would ask the forum. What size tank do you have and what protein skimmer do you use???????????/ I know about every newby on this forum seems to wonder about this question of what skimmer should I buy.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p

I've got a 46g bowfront. No sump. Have a Remora Pro hang-on-back with the Mag3 pump upgrade. While there are some picky things I have about it, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

I have an acrylic 210 gallon tank, with a 50 gallon sump. I run a Euro-Reef Skimmer (custom built for prior owner). EXTREMELY pleased with the Euro-Reef series. If this one goes down, I will definitely get another one!
