What brand is good for a protein skimmer? *Updated

I have heard that Seaclone and Jebo are not good at all.

Any suggestions on which brands?

I own 3 Aquamedic Turbofloater Multi's...I am quite happy with them. Your tank is large enough to not even be considering a seaclone. Unfortunately, I think you will need to look at the ones that are a little pricier. (the drawback of a bigger tank)

I have been using aceaclone for the past 8 months in my 37g, but I just ordered the Remora since I was getting tired of the inconsistant performance form the Sealcone. I'll let you know tomorrow how the two stack up against each other.

Lori. What sized tank is this again? I've grown to like the Aqua C brands. Got an EV180 for my 155g and the Aqua C Remora HOB for my 36g.

ASM makes good products, similar to Euro-Reef and not nearly as expensive.

I agree with austinsdad, go with the EV120 Aqua C. I have the Aqua C remora and I love it. I've also heard very good things about the EV120.
