AquaC EV-Series Protein Skimmers

Does anyone here use or know anything about the AquaC EV-Series Protein Skimmers? I need to get a skimmer and am thinking about this one. I guess its either this or an octopus. Thoughts or suggestions?

That's a good skimmer. Quite a bit more expensive than an Octo tho. If this is for your 75, the NW200 is more than enough skimmer and is under $200.

I got one on my 155g reef. Love it. Spend the extra few bucks for the JG speed fitting. I have the 180 with a Mag 7 drive. Very efficient IMO

If I have no need for it now can I just not use it and the skimmer still work? I dont see myself hooking up a Ca Reactor anytime soon.

Me neither, but for the xtra 10 bucks or so(seems like it was only a little bit) it was good to know I could if I ever WANTED to.

So as of now you arent using it... Does it just remain open or how does that work? If it isnt being used I mean. Is there a plug to block the opening?

Built in plug. Nothing is open unless I hook up to it.

They are good skimmers or at least used to be great skimmers. From what I have read they need an oversized pump and some finagling in order to get dialed-in and produce.
