I use the remora on my 55g and really like it. It was easy to dial in as you only raise or lower the cup and ir started skimming in about 2 weeks. I did however get the bubble trap box too, it helped me make sure no fish were sucked up with the maxijet and it cut down micro bubbles to nothing.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Reef octopus is a great skimmer too. I would probably go for that over the remora. I do really like the remora though, it's a tough call really. at least to me lol
