Hello everyone, its been a while. I have a question and I'd appreciate your feedback.

I am setting up a 46 gallon bowfront for a fish only setup. No inverts, no live rock. The aquarium is going in my TV room, so I am concerned about noise.

If anyone has experience with the Red Sea Prism Deluxe or the CPR Cyclone Bak Pak II with surface skimmer, please share your thoughts. How much noise? What is the foam quality? How effective are the respective suface skimmers?

Thanks,

Mark

I have the Red Sea Prism Delux having previously used a Berlin airlift model. I am more than happy with the amount of skimate I get out of the Prism although I do find it noisy compared to the air-lift. My tank is in the study

Very helpful input. Thanks to you both for posting. The link attached by FloridaBoy would be helpful to most anyone purching a skimmer and looking for a review.

I think you would be happier with a BAk-Pak VS a Prism.
