Do you need a HOB or can you go in sump?

I'm using an Aqua C which works well and I know a lot of folks recommend Bubble Magus or Octopus skimmers.

My first skimmer was a Corlife skimmer because everyone I talked to said how great they were...

Well years later I bought a SWC skimmer and it's about 1,000,000,000 times better than the Coralife skimmer! As a matter of fact, the SWC skimmer and the float valve connected to my RO are the two best things I ever did for my tank!

I recently went threw some serious health probs (actually died for 10 minutes), anyway due to being in the hospital for about 8 weeks the water didn't get changed in the tank for about 3-4 months but the SWC skimmer kept my tanks parameters perfect!

I wouln't by any other skimmer!
