    skimmer question!!!!!

    As I was told by many more experienced hobbiest.
    when I first started my salt water tank I was told to
    spend some what amount of money on a skimmer.
    I decided to buy a cheap one a prizm by red sea.
    at the start it was fine.......now the damn thing doesn't
    work,nothing but problems ever since.
    the question is. Acrylic city makes skimmers..are they
    any good and if so........can I buy direct from them without
    the expense of shipping. I was thinking a hang
    or one with sump.....any suggestions on their products
    and recomendations.
    thank you all.

    Just in case you didn't know his name here on AC is Harley, just send him a pm and tell him what you need. He's fast and very cheap, all it will cost is the price of the piece and the gas to get there. I got my overflow and I'm getting my sump from him, I'll probably get a skimmer in the future as well.

    I've only heard good things about Harley's work....I'll be buying my skimmer from him in the near future!
