Try Aquacave.com, Drsfostersmith.com, or marinedepot.com, they are the big ones that I have looked at and have found others to be really satisfied with. There are others that will have more, but just wanted to point these three out as they are a good place to start.

**EDIT**Thanks Zack!

Skimmers are one of the most important items in saltwater. Do not try and skimp on this or it will come back to bite you.

Junk. Look at Reef Octopus or CPR. They are great skimmers for the price IMO and the people that own them love them.


Hang on Back HOB Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers

Definetely not, not big enough. The skimmer is one of the items you dont want to skimp on. And dont buy a seaclone. Reef octopus makes some good ones, Aqua C Remora is another one, Make sure it is made for a 55gallon or bigger aquarium
