Re: Protein skimmers (was: box filter)

I've seen one freshwater skimmer design working beautifully at a local
importer's. They are very effective, but what I've seen is for larger
systems. They're sold by Biotope in Canada. They'll give you the bucket
of scum of your dreams. They are being used there for heavy loads,
discus, etc. They are cool things, but that's as far as my spectator's
product review can go.
