Tunze 9004 vs Hydor Slim Skim Nano

Does anyone have any input or experiences with these two skimmers? Im in the market for a new skimmer and I was thinking between these two for my biocube 29. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I had the hydor and I was very impressed.

Thanks for the response, I have heard good things also about the hydor slim skim nano. I also like the fact that it is more compact, it will fit inside the middle chamber easier, and it is about $50 cheaper than the tunze 9004. On the other hand the tunze has a water surface intake for skimming the surface and a special Tunze foamer pump to produce a ton of small bubbles.

I forgot to ask, what happened with your hydor skimmer? I ask since you said you had it
