    I'd recommend bubble magus. Seen some great tanks that run them.

    I personally like tunze

    I have a bubble magnus curve 5 and not that happy with it. Most people seem happy with theirs so I guess I have a dud.

    To get it to skim anything you have to set the water level halfway up the cup. Only a few months old. Doesn't make much bubbles, think the pump is too weak.
