Neither. Both are overpriced pieces of junk.
Look into Octopus skimmers. Are you looking for a HOB skimmer since that's what the Prizm is?

I agree, they are both cheap and not effective.

i have the red sea hob prizm skimmer on my 10g and it does help a little but it constantly needs to be adjusted. some days i think i have it adjusted right and the next time i look at it the cup is full of water. i wouldnt waste $40 on it. so glad i got it for free. it's such a PIA. also the salt creep from it is horrible.
