I've heard nothing but bad stuff on the CA pumps. I wouldn't go with them IMO. How big is your tank?

I have Jebo's version of the BakPak skimmer. It is EXACTLY the same as the BakPak but the only difference is the PH they use.

BTW I have Jebo PC's as well. You cant go wrong with the price they are selling it for. And for everyone saying they are too cheap and break. I have a 220w 48" Jebo PC for my 80gal and 110w 24" for my 20gal. NO problems no noise, no smell etc. and I've had the 48" over a year now running perfectly.

I have the jebo 180 skimmer and its my first skimmer but it seems to work well for me no complaints except the micro bubbles in the tank I got for the first two weeks but after that the bubbles stopped and it removes lots of nasty junk from my tank

I have both the Jebo 180 skimmer on the 90g and the Jebo 24" 130w light on my 20g. I am pleased with both of them and you simply can not beat the price. However, the skimmer pretty much needs to be in a sump. It is pretty bulky and has only rubber suction cups to hold it on. Mine also was the hang inside kind and takes up a lot of room. I added a 10 gallon sump with overflow and now it works like a charm and is out of sight.
Good luck! Kat
