Remora Pro

I found a remora pro 2 months used for the same price of a remora new. Should i buy it? My aquarium size is a 25G....

Would it be too strong? I heard that there is never a too strong skimmer. The stronger, the better...

Anyways, what do you guys think?

IMO, you can overskim, but none-the-less a remora pro is worth it's weight in gold, in my eyes anyway. I would take it in a minute and consider adding a sump for more water volume.

IMO is short for "In my opinion". There are a lot of acronyms that will show up highlighted and underlined like in the posts. Move your cursor over the word and the definition will appear in a box. You'll get the lingo as you get more into the hobby and more involved with the site.

What I mean by overskimming is just an opinion I have. I really do feel like you can have your water too clean. I think the ideal conditions mimic that of natural waters as closely as possible. Basically, I think you need a certain level of dissolved organics, trace elements, and protiens in the water that overskimming and over filtering can remove. Again this is my opinion only, as I said, if this used skimmer is in good working order it is well worth it.

I'd grab it...no question about it. If you are concerned about overskimming, you don't have to run it all the time. You could even put it on a timer to cut on and off automatically. JMHO.
