Protein Skimmer Models

I am doing some research on protein skimmers to purchase for my 55G tank. I looked at the JEBO 180 that is supposedly good for tanks up to 180Gallons. I for some reason have my doubts as to weather this device can truly handle the needs of even a 55G tank. I am also comparing another generic skimmer for $109. Just curious if i can save about $60 and go with the JEBO.

The specs are listed below:


90 Watts 800GPH Fully Submersible Power Head Pump Included
Suitable for All Marine and Fresh Water Aquarium up to 300 Gallons
Minimum Vibration with Low Noise and Completely Submersible.
High Capacity Vortex Reaction Chamber
Skimmer Runs Quietly and is Extremely Reliable
Venturi Action Pump Ensure Plenty of Bubbles
Oil free, Grease Free Magnetic Motor to Avoid Pollution in your Tanks.
Quick Precise Air Injection Control Above Water Level.
Detachable skimmer’s Upper Chamber for Easy Cleaning
(4) Plastic Suction Pads on Pump for Stability.
Everything Need to/can be Skimmed Will Not be Left Out.
Fits Any Tanks, Perform Especially Well for Marine Tanks.
More Effective than Air Driven Protein Skimmers
Comes with Everything you Need, Simply Plug In and Ready to Use

Power 90 Watt
Output 3200 L/H
AC 110V 120V /60Hz
Max Flow Rate: 800 GPH
Max Tank Size: up to 300 Gallons
All Hoses are Included! Easy to Set Up and Maintain

Most folks here rave about the Octopus line. Based on a proven skimmer design it costs much less than comparable units.
