I haven't looked at the skimmers on the market in a few years. It looks like the swc 160 is a cone skimmer. That was the big thing the last time I looked. You could spend a ton more money on a skimmer but I don't know how much better it would actually be. I'd see if they have a review on that thing on RC. They typically start up threads for every single skimmer on the market.

On the budget side, I've had good luck with SWC, Reef Octopus(newer ones), and Bubble Magus.
