What is the consenus here on a

HOB protein skimmer for a 20g tank?

Any favorites? Is one the better than the other or do they all do the same thing?

Which would you choose?

Under 175.00...

TIA

I like the Remora C. I dont know the current street price but get it with either the mag 3 or the maxijet pump.

I'll agree with FF, loved the remora when my tank was running, also used a CPR bakpak (skimmer only) for a while and it did a great job as well, for that sized tank.

I read some guy installed the CSS on a 30g and he said it took up too much space Due to the pre-skimmer box I think it has.

I have a 20g and I'm looking at the bak-pak, that 'other' brand. They also make a copy of the seaclone that supposedly uses needle wheel technology. I can't decide. Any users here? Thanks
