Skimmer for 90 gallon

I currently use a Bak Pak skimmer on my 90 gallon reef. I have been having some algae problems, but the tank is only 4 months. Should I upgrade to a better skimmer, if so what is good for a 90 gallon. Should I keep the Bak Pak and let the tank mature more? Thanks in advance for any advice.

So I look into "tank-raised" fish. Suppliers are ...

Temp Controllers: Medusa vs Aqualogic?

Hi there, I am shopping for a temperature controller, dual stage, to control heater and fans(or chiller eventually). I've looked at the Medusa and the aqualogic, and just looking for input on those who have used them. Of course if there is another brand, please let me know...
