Originally I was going to buy a sub $100 protein skimmer but found a old used reef octo on craigslist and bought it with the quickness. It's been running great and pulling tons of stuff from the water I missed during water changes. I'm not sure why hob skimmers get a ton of hate, but god dang this thing is working well.

whatever you do, dont get the Macro Aqua M-50 HOB, I got it a few months ago for its cheapness, and have regretted it from day 1. I just ordered the Aquamaxx 1.5 HOB, it will arrive on Monday, but the darn thing costs $300.

Honestly, i suggest checking your local online classifieds to find a better quality second hand product for cheap, rather than buying brand new cheap product.
