Protein Skimmer Advice

I'm in the process of purchasing a protein skimmer. Today I visited my LFS and they have a Reef Octopus 8 for a really good price. Does anyone have any advice or experience with this skimmer? Thanks

The octopus skimmers have great reviews and are good skimmers. You probably will find it cheaper online though so you might wanna do a quick search and see.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
