I just got a coralife super skimmer 65... seems to be a great skimmer! Uses a rio 1100 pump which is pretty big in the tank, but produces lots of skimmate.

those ones at ameka may still come with the Rio 600SVT pump. if they do, I urge you to upgrade it to a maxi-jet 1200, and you'll need a $5 venturi adapter for it too.

but all the new CPR's I've seen have the MJ1200, with the adapter. It's a far more efficient method of creating the bubbles needed to skim. some people have problems with microbubbles going back into the tank, but I do not.

buy the best you can afford. The remora pro while a little pricey is well worth it in the long run. Look around for used ones as well.

A guy at the LFS highly recommended a Seaclone 100 to me, and the price seems pretty reasonable enough but then again it was the only model he had in the store. I stumbled upon some product reviews that made it not sound so hot. Anyone have any experience with this model?

What exactly are you looking for a protein skimmer to do anyway? Is there a difference in how much skimmate it pulls out, or what it looks like?
