Before you buy a skimmer, knowing what makes the different types work can help you decide which one is best for your tank and your wallet.

Some of your news letters topics and the forum threads which lead from that topic, are very old. There are always recent forums about up-to-date skimmer, etc., problems and solutions. This has been noted to me from a new hobbist and a concern for him. Just a comment.

A protein skimmer is almost a must in a SW setup. Once you have had one and you see how much gunk it pulls out of your aquarium, you realize how important this add-on is.

I also have a Euro-Reef skimmer. It works great! I replaced it with another brand that was so finicky and lots of maintenance. I set this one and it does a great job. I need to clean the cup every other day but all the good skimmers require this type of maintenance.

I own a euro reef 135. The day I bought it about a year ago was the best day for my aquarium. The stuff it pulls out is unbelievable and the tank has never looked better. I can turn it off for a few days and the wife notices right away. The tank actually gets a sparkle to the water and the lights actually twinkle in the tank. Would recommend a euro reef to anyone.

I have a AquaC Remora with the Aquajet 1200. This a great HOB skimmer. I have one on my 30 Gallon Reef and it keeps my water pristine. It pulls out some of the foulest nastiest gunk imaginable. It is a plug and play skimmer.
