Notice he said the skimmer was highly modified to make it work well. Look how many Skilters have been sold over the years. I doubt that 10% are still in use and most that are are prolly modded to get them to work.tdwyatt i enjoyed your writings on skimmers (foam fractionators) I have to tell you though a skimmer is a skimmer and no matter how many vortexes or dodads you throw on there the basic job it does is a simple one. and in life if there is a simple solution sometimes that can be more beautiful than someone suckering you out of money for the most "technologicaly advanced" skimmer. You still use your skimmer(berlin airlift), right? Why is that? Because it is simple conveniant and does a good job.
I think the Remora or Urchin would be a better choice for small tanks
