I would suggest Coralife Super Skimmer as for great performance and low price comparing to the other products. One drawback is its big size

I had a skilter in my 55 years ago and it was very noisy.

The coralife is not noisy at all. The only awkward thing about setting it up is the bubble diffuser box. U just got to play around with it for a few days to set it right and then it's ready for service.

Edited: my CSS 125 was my most satisfied purchase in this hobby

What mods?
Do you have a link?
I have a skilter and it worked great for skimming but was so loud I had to quit using it. (the microbubbles weren't pretty either)
If there's a way to make it quiet I'd definitely put it back on one of my tanks.

My vote is for the bak pak. I've used the Aqua C, but didn't like it.
