Octo xtreme 200?

I've heard some great things about their skimmers and have been entertaining the thought on getting this one in-sump for my 150. Some say it's in the same class as euro's but alot cheaper.

Any thoughts?

They're probably not made quite as well as say MRC or some of the more expensive lines, but I'm running a Octo Ex 250 on my 120 with great results. I did have some problems with the sicce pumps restarting and I switched to the ATB purple pin wheels and that resolved the problems. Only been running for 6 months now, but so far I'm pretty happy.

Great Skimmers, but quality wise, they are by no means Euro-Reef, MRC, Vertex, ect. Yet, due to price, they outsell all the above at my shop...

I say you should go Bubble King
