    Anyone use this skimmer? What do you like/dislike about it? How often does it have to be cleaned, maintenance, performance, etc.? This will go on a 75g, with a mag 12, maybe 18 if I feel like using more electricity. It seems to have a very good price for how well it claims to work. If the...

    I've been out of the hobby for a while (inconsistent with raisin young-ens and all) but now my 7 yr old is showing an interest. I've been reviewing this site for equipment ideas, and I see no one mentions the ETS skimmers anymore. Have they been junkpiled in favor of the octopus and deltec styles?

    How much money did you spend in 2007 on this hobby?

    Needs to be a nice one for my 120 gallon reef tank. No junk skimmers that dont work. Can anyone recommend a good model? One with good user reviews I can read about or a website that rates skimmers with customer feedback? I do want a beckett skimmer. I already have the pump Jay

    im in need of a skimmer upgrade on my 125(145gal total). looking mainly at a mrc-mr2 or a octopus nw-200, or asm g2. price isnt as much a concern as productivity and low maintenance. i want to pull alot of skim but dont want to have to fiddle with it everyday to keep it running correctly...
