We bought a cheap protein skimmer for $150 from PetCo and bought some supplies at HomeDepot and rigged it up so that it performes better than the other brand names out there. We simply got tubing, etc and took the whole protein skimmer apart. Basically, we gutted the poor thing. There is better water flow and it picks up more gunk out of the water. I think the octopus is very happy with our creation. Someday I will provide a picture of our monster.
