I found the CS6-2+ for 369.99 online. If you go to Euro-Reef's page, click on the "where to buy online link" and their online dealer in Indiana has the cheapest price on the CS6-2+ I have seen (and I have been looking for months). The LFS
didnt really make a recommendation either way about the recirculating model. They did say that the regular Euro Reef skimmers do just fine. They better for the price they get!
