Guide Review - Lee's Counter Current Protein Skimmer

This in-tank, air pump and limewood stone driven counter current protein skimmer is not very expensive or fancy, and far from being one that is state-of-the-art. However, for all intents and purposes it does a good job at an inexpensive price, and we are happy with the one we purchased.
