Trying to pick a skimmer for my new 30g setup. This tank will basically be a frag grow tank. I may put a fish or two in it, but maybe not. Tank will also have a 30g sump.
The remora's have had a fairly good track record, so I'm thinking of going with that for a hang on skimmer, but I'm also looking at the octopus skimmers as they have had good reviews recently. Noise is an issue as well so I want one as quiet as possible.
Any comments on these or other recommendations?
ecvernon thats what I'm thinking of doing but from an ev120 that I know is too small for my 125 loaded with sps and lps . Everything does great in my tank but I know I should upgrade either bubble king or deltec ap600 I tried reading all the posts on this thread got to page 50 and gave up I'm gonna pass out
that will make a huge difference. that mesh wheel is no joke compared to spray injector..i ran the aquac 180 with a mag 9.5 and got great results. but when i put that ati 160 boy i got some smelliest nasty stuff out it almost made me throw up lol
great, does anyone know the difference between the ATI BM 200 Generation 1,2 or 3. I saw one for sale recently and didn't buy it because it was Generation 1 and I didn't know if that was good or very old.
this is such a great thread, however the only downfall is for most of these skimmers you dont know how big the persons tank is, how heavy stocked it is and/or how much/often/what they feed as all this will impact how a skimmer performs.
My Asm needs a new seal and I was going to buy a BM200 but Before I took the dive, I researched as much as possible and a few posts in this site and others pointed out how expensive they are in comparison to others and the work they do. Now I am not saying that is or was my experience, that is simply the info I gathered so all roads led to Reef Octopus Extreme 200 .... but I can't buy it because while I researched it, I found a new one so now I have to wait a month for everyone else to get one and either complain Or Love their first cone skimmer the XP-2000. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope my Asm holds on and that it is worth the wait...
Btw The Xp-2000 has been reworked since it's first intro. Here
