Red Sea Prism Deluxe or CPR Cyclone Bak Pak II?
I have years of experience in the saltwater hobby, but I've never used the skimmers listed. I am setting up a 42 gallon bowfront for fish only, no inverts, no live rock. I am on a $150 budget for the skimmer, and both the Red Sea Prism Deluxe and CPR Cyclone Bak Pak II are within this budget.
Does anyone have experience with these units? My primary question concerns noise level. The aquarium will be in my TV room, so I want to keep the noise level down as much as possible. I know the CPR unit will handle the tank size, but I am concerned about noise. Comments?
Additionally, if anyone has used the Prism Deluxe system, how effective is the surface skimmer?
Thanks ahead -
