Best Skimmer IVe had 10/26/2013
I have this skimmer for my 220g Oceanic Reef tank; bubble blaster pump puts out a ton of flow and bubbles, skims great with minimal adjustments. Has a monster collection cup (my is connected to a drain). Gate valve makes adjustments easy.
The only negative is that you have to remove the entire skimmer to clean the pump although I've only had to do this once. Also, price seems to have doubled from when I bought mine.
