Hello!

New to the hobby, been at it for about 3 months now and recently converted my 25g planted tank to a saltwater tank. I was looking at some suggestions for a hang-on-the-back protein skimmer, I've been looking at different articles for suggestions but when I go look at the skimmers the recent reviews are pretty bad.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what they use or recommend for a 25g tank? Or if I would even need one? Still new and learning every day, any help would be apprecaited! Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I have a 32 gallon and I got myself an aquamaxx 1.5 a few months ago, I love it, its the best skimmer I've ever had. Its kind of pricy, but the performance makes me feel like I got my money's worth. I picked this one based on the online reviews, it seems to have excellent reviews.

Reef Octopus HOB Classic 1000 series. I've used RO Classic 1000 HOB and the aquamaxx hob. I bought the aquamaxx (based on reviews) after running the RO on a 40 breeder for 5 years and regretted my decision everyday. Reef Octo's in general seem to be the best bang for the $$.
