Has anyone seen this ? Eco Aqualizer ???

I don't know where to exactly post this question, but I'll start here. In searching for a skimmer for my new aquarium, I ran into this website. Sounds more like a uv sterilizer to me. Could someone check this site out and give me more opinions ? I was almost thinking about trying this unit. Is it supposed to replace the use of a skimmer(I don't see where it works like one), etc. ? Someone please explain this to me. Sounds good but worth it ??
The address is www.ecoaqualizer.com Thanks again.

These units are based on redox potential, which is rarely discussed due to the expensive cost of testing for that at home hobbyist. Redox is commonly measured in large public displays.

My problem is this.... Here is a copy/paste of the first paragraph from the link above:
"All aquariums contain metabolic wastes which over time slowly degrade water quality and create unhealthy conditions. Unfortunately, monthly water changes have been the only way to help control these issues. But not anymore! Introducing ECO-AqualizerTM, the first aquarium IONIZATION system that revitalizes water quality to a constant healthy balance and keeps water crystal clear year-round."

T
his statement is simply false. Water changes are not the only way to control the buildup of metabolic waste. In a marine aquarium waste is released in the form of organic acids, which are REMOVED by a protein skimmer. Removing waste is a very nice method of controlling waste buildup, in my humble opinion.

I would be very curious how abfisher plans to test for redox potential. Do you have access to a lab with such equipment? This could be a very cool project.

I agree with pasfur in this as well.

" Toxins to become more free floating for X...Xeasier and effective removal."
This is a curious statement. What's it being removed by? All the advo shows that there is no skimmer needed or filtration, but the statement above leaves me to believe that it require one... you should try with and without a skimmer and test the water to get an accurate reading. Perhaps the combo would work tenfold because it helps with the polarity of the ions and that's what a skimmer capitalizes on?

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
