    Having trouble keeping track of all the protein skimmers out there? You are not the only one. Here is a preview of some new skimmers from AquaEuroUSA. Take a little Euro-Reef, thrown in a little Deltec and stir?

    Recirc give the water more opportunity to be 'cleaned'. If the principal of a skimmer is to inject air in small bubbles unto the water thus causing the proteins or organic mater to collect on the bubble then when the bubble breaks the organic mater is collected in the cup.
    With a recirc less water is moved through the skimmer but the water is forced to meet a lot more air bubbles and this is a more efficient when it comes to removing organic mater

    Has anyone been able to find a price list for these skimmers? I really like my Euroreef but would like a quick-release skimmer cup. I have an older style that takes forever to un-screw.
