    the prizm takes less fussing than the seaclone but has a smaller collection cup and is noisier. It also takes less space of that is an issue.

    i dont know neither of those .. but I would choose the one that is most efficient and can take the biggest load... regards of noise and rest... I am reading a book right now.. and it states it simple enough, you can never overskim a tank.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    i agree that you can't overskim, keeps the algae under control
