    So now that the hood has come off my Boyu TL450, I can now look at a better skimmer for my systems. I know a lot of peeps are using the Boyu WG308 which i'm guessing is because it fits into the compartment. But without the lid I can look at maybe a hangover unit as well ???

    Any suggestions?

    My standard skimmer is actually working suprising well and does pull a fair amount of crap out of the water but I rate I can find a better unit.

    I was using a red sea prism hang on back skimmer on my boyu tl55 and it worked great, mush better than those boyu skimmers.

    Nope, just hooked it on, made custom lights as the lis can not be used when the skimmer is in place, please note that the tl55 is bigger.

    Im looking at getting the Reef Octopus BH100, looks like it should work. How noisy was the Prizm?
