    I really wish these skimmer companies would produce some data, R&D numbers, and test results to back up the claims their design is any better than any other skimmer out there. This doesn't just apply to Great White, but pretty much all of them. For example: "On equally stocked reef aquariums, our design produced 50ml more dark skimmate per week than the competition". Something like that. Without real data, skimmer manufacturers are just relying on hype and the band wagon effect to sell their products. They sell for the first year or two, then fall off the face of the planet. Somatic and Nyos for example, most likely will be gone soon and forgotten.
