Need help with Skimmer

Hey guys I am currently upgarding to 180 in a week or so and my problem is I have 2 skimmers right now an ASM G3 and MRC1. I also have a 100 gallong sump (Rubbermaid) and I know that running one alone will not be enough and running 2 skimmers will be too much right?.. What should I do? used 2 skimmer or sell both and buy a new skimmer?.. I will be keeping mostly SPS and LPS and looking for to put like 12 fish. Any info or advise is appreciated.. thanks

I'd sell both and get a new bigger skimmer.

You can either sell both, and buy a bigger skimmer or run both of them. I doubt that running both in a SPS tank will be to much.

It will not be too much to run both, in fact the POS MRC-1 will out skim the G3 if you have a proper pump.
