skimmers

hey i was just looking for some input on a new skimmer right now i have a super skimmer 65 that likes to flood my living room( its happened 3 times in the last 6 months) wondering what some ppl that have been in the hobby for a while would recommend using for a 65 gallon tank with no sump so it wold have to be a hob. also as i had just purchased the super skimmer a couple months ago i dont have a lot of money so i would be looking for a inexpensive skimmer

First off, have you seen the mods for your skimmer? I've done them, and the skimmer works perfect with em. But if you are still looking.

a filter for a saltwater tank.

basically whips the water around inside which creates foam which rises out into a collection cup. there is no media filtration like there is on a freshwater tank. ( no canister filters, hang on filters, bioballs, biowheels, and so forth. )
