What's your tank size? I run a HOB red octopus and I think it's great. It lacks in adjustment though.

I have a CPR Aquafuge PS. It is a combination refugium and skimmer that is HOB. I found it on eBay without the fancy name at 1/2 price.
It is listed as a 75 something when I searched SKIMMER.


I would be nervous about it all hanging on the back, but mine is sitting on supports on the stand.

Something to consider.
