Turboflotor Multi VS. Remora Pro which one is better?

Hello, I'm in the process of buying a skimmer for my 37 gallon, I need a HOT, because I don't have a sump. The tank is new with nothing but 4" DSB and 35 lbs LR. I would like a HOT skimmer to eventually be enough for a larger future aquarium, as well as this 37 g. any suggestions for a quality skimmer? Thanks

I would say the remora Pro would work the best. I have the Regular Remora and It works awesome on my 55gal..

Hmmm, that would require me to have experience with both to answer the question. I think the Turbflotor is rated for a larger aquarium than the remora pro, and you can't really go wrong with either one. FWIW, you can easily use a remora (non-pro) for that size tank.

Thanks for the replies, I can get a turbo multi a little about $35.00 cheaper than the Remora Pro, Which one would be quieter and a little less maintenance?

The Aqua Medic is huge compared to the Aqua-c. THe Aqua-C would be my first choice.

I have an Aqua-C Remora Pro on my 55G and it works great. It has a pretty small foot print about 6" wide by 3" deep. I originally had a Red Sea Prism which did not perform well. Due to the cost of the Remora Pro I had to convince my wife that we needed to upgrade. After I got it up and running she couldn't believe how much gunk this skimmer collected. She was thoroughly grossed out. Needless to say she didn't want our fish swimming in dirty water

I got my Aqua-C from Captivereefs

The turboflotor is definitely my 1st choice. I carry both in my store and also use them both. The only drawback is that the turboflotor works best when it's clean so maintance is a monthly thing sometimes 1 every two months. It is also extremely quiet. Aqua C is a bit louder and don't skim as well a the turbo flotor. But it is a great machine compare to the other stuff that is out. I just like the flotor better.

My choice would be the Aqua C Pro for two reasons. First, I have never used a Turboflotor so I don't really know much about them. Second, the Aqua C needs less room and I know it's a quality product. I have sold quite a few Aqua C's and everyone who has bought one has been happy with it as far as I know.

Thank you all for your input, I bought the Turboflotor Multi, and am very happy with it.

Did you require 10" of space behind the tank? The directions on the web call for that and it seems like you have to have the tank pretty far away from the wall. Your thoughts?
