Redline 200 Skimmer

Has anyone out there ever used a Redline 200 Skimmer?
If so how was it?

Any recommendations would be greatly apprecaited before buying something and to only find out it is not worth it.

Mary

It's a good skimmer, but way over priced if your looking at a new 1. This Octopus skimmer is better and costs less.

If this is for your 55g, then you don't need 1 quite that big. This would work perfect.

I agree with Larry. Octopus brand skimmers are the top of the line IMO.

Does the Reef Octopus make a skimmer for hang on. I need to get another skimmer for my 55gal because the one I had it broke and I can not find the part to be replaced. It is odyssea skimmer ps75 not to bad of a skimmer once I got the flow going right. It is the part is the shape of a horse shoe. The black nozel part on it. I would attach a picture but not sure how to in these messages.

Yes they do have a couple HOB options. Google them and you should be able to find several online vendors that carry them.

I was on Aquacave website but could not find one made by Reef Octopus yet... However, I did stumble across another website with very good prices.
www.customaquatic.com at least to me anyways.
