I would go for the reef octopus bh1000. I have one on my aquarium and it pulls a lot of stuff out of the water. I also heard good things about the aqua c remora!

You'll be getting what you pay for. If it's cheap it's made cheap.

well thats not always the case, and i dont consider Hydor a cheap brand, its my first sw tank and its small, (37g-bf) so i really dont wanna drop $300 on a skimmer for my first tank, now my 75g show tank? hell yes ill drop the cheddar for some serious equipment but im just getting my feet wet
