You will hear people give bad opinions of the seaclone, but I have had three of them on three tanks and never had an issue with one. I have always gotten good skimmate from them and they are only around $80.

I have a Remora and love it. I have to empty it about every 1.5 days and it pulls some good stuff. Takes about 2 weeks for it to break in though.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Iv heard u say several timesbu love your Remora. I just can't seem to get mine to pull like others say there's is. Iv tried lots of things... threw it in sump, bought surface skimmer, tried using different pump, just seems to either be to watery or nothing really comes up! Don't get it!
