I use an aquaC remora pro. I've had no problems with it. It's a very good skimmer.

Aqua C Remora and Remora Pro...both excellent trouble free units.

Is this for your 90 gallon tank? If so, an Aqua C Pro would still be on the small side for that size a tank, but would still be good. If it HaS to be hang on back, then Aqua C Pro would be decent & trouble free, just make sure you keep your bioload low, and keep your water changes and maintenance up!

Is this going to be HOB or in-sump? What is your budget? If the skimmer can fit into your wet/dry, an in-sump would give you 2010912390128 more options, just FYI.

Let us know... the more info, the better

Im pretty sure I could put it in my wet/dry. And yes it is for my 90. My budget would be about $200 on this.

i got a seaclone, this is my first skimmer so i cant really compair it with anything, but seems that all i read about it is bad things, unless u do some mods to it. So i would recomend staying away from it, in all fairness it seems to do its job for me but if you could save and get a higher priced one its just one less thing 2 worry about.

I run a CPR bak-pak, but it's way too small for a 90gallon tank.

I have the Aqua C Urchin Pro in my sump. I have a 72G tank and it works great. Highly recommended.

I have a sea life system NV150 (paid $135)
Seaclone modded 100 ($35)
2 amiracle venturi skimmers (one free, one $20)
going to purchase a Euroreef RS8-2 w/ new betta pump or a ASM G4+ as soon as I make up my mind.

All the skimmers I have so far are pretty cheap but I'm happy with all of them for what I paid. They all pull a decent amount of junk from my tank but I'm sure a better more $$ skimmer would pull more.
