upgrade skimmer?

hey all i got a question on an upgrade that i need some advise on

after having so much frustration with my seaclone 100 skimmer on my 90 gallon tank (sw) i'm considering the seaclone 150
i think the reason the darn thing wouldnt work right is the tank was on the larger side for it to skim good (its rate up to 100 gallons)
so if i get the 150 do u think it will skim better?
i can get one on ebay for a good price

You should wait and save some money up and get a quality skimmer. Talk to Darin at captive reef about the aqua c's. The best thig I did was upgrade to the aqua c's

Send a message via AIM to jaiden
remora and urchin are the same thing. remora is HOB and urchin is for a sump.

Many many people recommend either the remora or the BakPak

I had a seaclone but it was terrible (too many microbubbles). Don't botter with the 150.

Do you have a sump? If so I would look at a ETSS or a Euro reef. They are a bit more , but well worth the money.

Had a 100 and it leaked (and never picked up crap) so petsmart took it back and only had a 150... got that and it was just as bad if not worse... wanna buy mine? Only a month old... not even.

good seriously if anyone wants to buy my 150 I will sell it to them. I paid like $140 or so about 2 weeks ago... You can have it for $100.
