HOB Skimmer vs HOB Refugium w/skimmer

I need a hang on back skimmer for 20 gallon salt tank, to be replaced with a 29 gallon in 6 months. According to the opinions of the board membership, the best is the AquaC Remora with the Maxijet 1200 powerhead, with the CPR Bakpak2 with the Maxijet 1200 powerhead coming in second.


CPRAquatics has just released the AquaFugePS, a hang on back refugium with a protein skimmer built in. It has a little over 3 gallon capacity and sells for $30 more than the AquaC Remora. Does anyone out there have any experience with CPR's non-BakPak skimmers? Should I go with the AquaFugePS, or the Remora?

I run a fish only tank, no live rock or corals. Thanks for all opinions.
