What kinds of protein skimmers do you guys use? I need to find a really good one for 150$ or less. My tank is a 46g, and I will be having a sump. I don't want a hang on back one. Any advice is appreciated.

I had that one. It sent electrical currents into my tank zapping my hand if it was in the water. It was garbage. I am done with those kinds. Thanks for the help, it might have been a isolated case, but it had lots of other problems, like it started to leak water onto the floor, and it wasn't good at collecting stuff. Thanks for the advice.

Hello biller
I currently don't run a skimmer at the moment on my reef. But for bigger Saltwater systems I have heard really good reviews on the Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers. Check them out on BulkReefSupply.com. They have some pretty good skimmers. Here's a skimmer

My experience is extremely limited, but I believe it's likely that you'll need to bump your budget up to the $150-$200 range, and then there will be various good options to choose from, such as the Reef Octopus in this link:



Best of luck to you!

Look on Craigslist, or your lfs. If the store accepts trade ins then you can probably find a good quality skimmer for much cheaper than you would pay new. You can get within your budget, just shop smart
