    Well this is just lovely.. My skimmer is broken.

    Got home now to find a very noisy skimmer. Took the skimmer out, was time for a good cleaning anyways. . firstly, the needle wheel and magnet is split in half.. something hard broke it.. looks like a shell.used prtley, fixed it for temp, but pump doesnt start at all :(

    Then, cleaning my cup, it fell, and "crack" off is the little neck bit.

    I was planning on a bigger skimmer, problem is I have no idea what to buy.

    The new Skimz look nice, the Reef Octopus Bubble blasters are nice, the ATI's also.
    Then there is the new Vertex range Nathan from T.S.R does.

    Please , I need help here! I need to go and buy one tommorow.

    Did you start a thread in the for sale forum with pics? If not, I suggest you do - you'll get better exposure.

    all the options you listed are great
    Skimz
    Blasters
    ATI's
    As well as Deltecs
    Make sure that you get one that pumps at least 1000Lph air minimum and you will be happy with any of the above as they all great skimmers and really perform what it would boil down to is the size of the sump as well as how much money you have to spend
