Yeah he's my top 3 aswell (First being Crosshatch and third being Queen) but he'll be nothing but trouble. He picked on every fish I had but they were small enough to retreat in between the rocks and as for the lionfish; he is too large to squeeze and hide between crevices do he's easy game.

mike dont think im including you in this mix, your cool. just its a shame that a person cant ask a skimmer question without some sort of "fight" breaking out. like driving a ford mustang to a mopar club. pretty soon no one can be right about anything or have an unbiased opinion. and too often ive seen people start mouthing off about a skimmer they have never owned just because they use brand x. good luck with your search for your skimmer and let us know what you pick out.

just for giggles ill just say i ordered a reef dynamics skimmer last weekend and waiting for it to be delivered. for me it was between a vertex or the smaller version of the diablo that mike recomended, only with a bubble blaster pump.

Stick with the Niger. Hell be fine. Also why about a blue jaw???? And I would personally just make your own skimmer. I bought a reef octo nw200 and it was so loud i took it down. I know most arent like this but I decided to make my own and it is awesome. Almost full collection cup of yellow gross water after 2 days. Not even broken in. It foams amazingly. Check out my "DIY skimmer success" in DIY forum for details.

No problem at all twitch. I'll admit I don't know much about other skimmers . The only reason I say go with the diablo is obviously because I have one and I know it skims a cup every two days like clockwork. I believe I read a post from mr x about skimmers. He stated it's all about the pump not really the design of the body.

Just my 0.02: I have as aqua c remora s and I think it's great!! It was a little pricey, and I did have to buy a pump with it, but it works great and it's quiet once it breaks in.

I gotta re-look at it. It's a mag pump though.

This is the ASM g-series skimmers my work sells... For the price they are amazing skimmers. The g-5 on our 400g reef show tank pulls the most disgusting dark green skimmate i have ever seen. Thiughts?
