I like the Coralife Super Skimmer. Abit less expensive than the Remora and great performance. The only problem i had with it is i had to mess around with the bubble diffuser box for a few hours to get it right XD

I'm one of those fishnutz, who are actually nutz.

I have had my Remora up and running since Monday night. I checked it this morning and it has fust started to create foam, so the break in period is hopefully coming to an end. I will check it out tonight and report back.

So far, I am happy with the Remora. Much nice looking than the Seaclone. We'll see about the skim quality soon, but I am not worried.

The jebo works just fine. I bought the Jebo180 off ebay as you say for $50 and it does a great job. Keep in mind this is NOT a venturi skimmer. The "venturi" or whatever the hell it is is located in the powerhead they send with you. It says it will handle 180gallons but I highly doubt it. For a small tank this is a pretty darn good skimmer. I wouldn't put it on anything larger than a 55gallon. I use it on my 10g and 30g with great results. For my bigger tanks I use a Berlin. If it's your first tank and it's 30g or smaller it will be great.

I have the Coralife Super Skimmer, and it does a great job!

The only drawbacks to the CSS are that it takes up more space inside the tank than most other skimmers, and it does take some time to get set up properly, the bubble diffuser box caused me quite a headache for a while. Now that it is broken in, though, it does a beautiful job!

Also, even thought I am only FOWLR, I still recommend a skimmer. Mine takes out quite a bit of junk and I still have to scrub algae every few weeks...I don't know what it would be like without it!


38 Gallon (Freshwater): 1 Green Swordtail, 3 Yo-Yo Loaches, 1 Clown Pleco, 1 Blue Gourami, 4 Otocinclus, 7 Cherry Barbs.

46 Gallon (Saltwater): 60 pounds Lalo Live Rock, 60 pounds aragonite sand, 1 Coral Beauty Angelfish, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, 1 Mushroom Coral, 1 Emerald Crab, various snails and hermit crabs.

10 Gallon (Saltwater quarantine):
