Due to space constraints in my sump, I must run a HOB skimmer. I have been considering the Prizm Pro Deluxe skimmer. Says its good up to 300 gal. It will go on a 100 gal tank eventually, but will go on my 55 for another month or so until the 100 is set up. I am not expecting this thing to work miracles, but wonder if this will work ok for my tank since I will be only reaching 1/3 of its maximum potential.. Anyone have any experience with these?

IN MHO all RedSea skimmer are JUNK!!!! I would not put a prizm on goldfish bowl!!!

And as far as being rated to 300 Gallons..... What a laugh... the only person i know that has had any luck with one has it on a 5 gallon nano!!!

I can't believe they have the balls to rate that thing for 300 Gal.

a 300 gallon tank with one snail would be to much for it.

The turbo floater is one of the better hang ons.... in sumps are better, you have more choices.

cool!... that is the one I will get then... It looks like this one can be used in or out of the sump so it will work great for me! I might be able to use this one in my sump due to the design!
