    I think the skimmer to be the heart of your system, if you have bad quality water nothing can go right in your tank, so to me its where the money should go first. ;D

    I paid $120 for my Coralife SuperSkimmer 125 and then I found a used euro reef rs80 for $60. The euro reef is a way better skimmer. For 60 bucks I cant complain. Now I need to see about selling the CSS on craigslist.

    Since this thread is again alive, I should update my info. I paid $399 for my XP-2000 from Octo. It's not running yet, but will be in a few days.
