Only draw back to the CPR is that it uses an air venturi that will clog monhly with salt creep and need to be cleaned along with the rest of the airlines on the power head. it is also a little louder than the remora which uses spray injection that is virtually maintnence free andquieter. The remora also skims better IMO.

I have yet to find a remora that isn't about $200, vs. $109 for a CPR. For a dinky 29gallon tank that can only house 2-3 fish, that much of a skimmer seems like overkill...unless you think you'll upgrade to a larger tank in a couple years (or less).

People told me the Prizm sucks...but its sure pulling some nasty stuff outta my water.

I am using a seaclone 150 right now, and have had no problems with it. I empty a nasty cup full about every 3-4 days. I will however buy a Remora as soon as possible. The seaclone was what I bought when I knew nothing, and trusted the lfs for all my knowledge. 8O

Anyway, it has worked fine so far, but I want to get the best, now that I know.

I'm really glad I bought a Prizm before seeing what other people had to say about it.. while I had it, it was a great little skimmer and I will continue to recommend it to people with small tanks on a tight budget.
