    I've had the Berlin Classic for quite some time. Ended up changing it.

    How will your 125 be stocked?

    I had the Berlin XL model for quite awhile and now I have a AeroFoamer 630 beast of a clone and it rocks. IMO, go with the Venturi one. If you're going to buy a skimmer, get the absolute "best" you can manage to afford. It is one piece of equipment you don't want to skimp on otherwise you'll just be changing it sometime down the road.

    i can attest to what toutouche says. when i first set up my tank, i got a SeaClone100 (thats what the guy in the pet store sold me, i know - i learned the hard way not to trust them) here i am not 6 months later upgrading to the Remora Pro for over $250 US and the $100 i spent on the SeaClone is long gone. to sum up, i spent $350 for a $250 skimmer. get the better one from the start, its cheaper than buying it after you spent on the cheaper model.
