I had one on a 75 fowl and I wish I would of spent the money to get a berlin type or other. In all honesty the sea clone I got was better.

I had a prizm for 100G on my 29G for a week. It totally sucks badly comparing to the CSS that i have right now.

hahaha...theres a guy trying to sell me one right now for 90. I can get better ones from what i hear for less than that...he keeps goin on about how good it is too.

oh well, i guess some people just want to sell, and dont really care what you get out of it, kinda like some lfs's.

Granted the seaclone is nothing to rave about but compared to the prizm is the greatest thing since the moon pie. Um, a lot of people here say good stuff about the aqua c remora I think. Just something to check out. Suggest a search in the saltwater forum under skimmer to see just which one it is. But get the biggest one you can and one from a better brand company. Good Luck

Don't buy prizm for $90. I got mine for $60. REgardless, the product sucks. You won't get a good skim out of that product. You'll get, like, tea-colored skim. But most good and fairly affordable skimmers out there skim dark coffee.

Prizm is a bad skimmer with good lies behind it. Don't buy it! Not even the pro series. It doesn't matter. First off, it doesn't have a needle impeller than allows for tinier bubbles. It has like a multi-blade regular impeller that you can find in most powerheads. Not worth the money, I tell you. And I own one right now.
