The HV1 is working pretty decently but nothing special so far. I ordered a Remora w/ MJ1200, gonna try that out and post a comparison. I do not have enough space on the back of my tank for the HV1 + fuge + closed loop. This tank is in a baby room as well, and the nasty brown collection cup haning over the top of the tank ruins the mood

When I get the Remora, I will run both skimmers. The HV1 will have been running for just over two weeks, so I will be able to tell if the Remora is able to pull more wastes out of the water after the HV1 has tried.

I have the Remora sitting in the box in front of my fish tank. I have been sick for almost the last week and unable to set it up. Now I gotta catch up and get ready for Xmas. Maybe the Remora can be an Xmas present for the tank :P

What a lucky tank, to get such a nice present :P I don't really know anything about skimmers (I know a lot of people here recomend the Remora), but I'd like to see how they compare too. I hope you feel better for Christmas!

I wish I could just order Protein Skimmers and other equipment just like that.

I think what your doing is a very good idea. It's hard to find good reviews on products so this should help a lot.

I just ordered a CPR Bak-Pak and I wish some one had done a review of the product like you are doing on this.

Yes $imple I think more people should do tests like that.
Everybody (but me) just buys two different brands if they need new equipment and then we write revives
Side note: All I'll be buying will be pampers in the near future

I'll take the losers of the comparisons if you guys feel overburdened by them.

The admins should start a unique thread on user reviews of products (hint, hint!)

It's already there. Look at the top of the home page and select "Product & Retailer Reviews"
