Well my money is on a Euro-Reef. I don't have one personally but if I could afford the one that I want that is what I would get. I have an ASM G4X recirculating skimmer and am very pleased with it. BTW Octopus skimmers are the new name for the ASMs.

That's the question....lol. Basically the thing is a tube with magnets that supposedly magnetically charges the water and somehow disrupts the molecular structure. It came out a few years ago. This thread from reefs.org might be a little easier to follow.

Where did you hear this? You sure you aren't just mistaking the websites octopusskimmer.com and asmskimmer.com. Both those sites are actually Marine Solutions (www.marinesolutionsinc.com) which sell both brand skimmers.

my personal opinion of the ECO-Aqualizer, (having actual experience with it) is that it's CRAP. glad it was free to try it. it's funny, when I called their customer service line to let them know I was returning it, (of course the guy had to try to back up it's claim) he said that it wasn't meant to help keep nitrates down, yet they claim it will reduce water changes dramatically. so I said well that's the whole point of a water change, is to keep the nitrates down (besides replenishing trace elements) he claims that it's okay to have your nitrates at 140ppm as long as it’s not a reef tank. lol. anyone here agree with that? I also didn't notice any difference in my water being clearer which is a big thing they claim it will do is give you "crystal clear water".

I know I'm probably too late, but I have been very pleased with my Reef Devil Deluxe with the MAG 7 drive. I have had it for over 2 years and has worked very well. The only thing is you have to maintain a consistent water top off level in the sump to be the most effective. The best part is being able to run a hose from the collection cup to an empty milk jug to prevent over flowing. That's my .02 cents.

Regards,

Mike
