Protein Skimmers

I am curious about protein skimmers that are used in the marine-end of the
hobby.  I understand that they collect dissolved waste in the water before
bacteria get a chance to break it all down to nitrates.  Why aren't these
used in the freshwater hobby more?  I'd like to try one on my 75 gallon, but
if it causes significant CO2 loss, well then...
