Looking to get one. I am looking for one that is easy to use and won't break the bank. Suggestions?

Would not recommend an AquaC Remora or Remora Pro. Been disappointed with mine. However, my CPR BakBak 2R+ was great.

i have never heard another bad review of the remora skimmers ...i love mine and have used it on 3 different tanks and am very pleased with it


but to the original question it all depends what size tank you have as to what is a good skimmer is for you

I have one of these I'd be willing to let go cheap:

When I used it I didn't have any issues. I've since graduated to an ASM G4 - soon to go to a Bubble King
