I saw a homemade one and he says he has to suck the air out to make the water flow over.

Also everybody keeps telling to get t5 lights but there like 500 bucks so wouls the ones i listed work?

All of those skimmers are a waste of money. If I had to pick one, it'd be the Coral life. Other than that BubbleKing, H&S, Bubblemaster, Deltec, Euroreef, Turboflotor, and ASM. From highest quality to lowest. Those are the types of skimmers that really work and work well.

Lol i think the bubble king is a little bit out of my range. I look around a bit more.

Thanks

Check Ebay. There are some great deals on older ER ESV-5 and or the new extruded acrylic 80g skimmers. They really work. You can also find some nice deals on ASM, like the miniG for about $100.

Peope are telling you to get t-5? It relly dosent matter if you have 130 watts of compact flourecent or 130 watts of t-5. Have you considered going fish only and then uprading your lighting? The lighting will depend on what you want to keep. you will get MANY different opinions on lighting, mike will want you to get metal halide but i think you should go with a used cp fixture.

Would a Refugiums
work?

I dont really know what it is.

Im not relly sure what your getting at here we were just talking about skimmers and lights and you jumped to refugiums. Ask that again.

Like I stated before in another thread, I have always wanted MH light, but never knew it would make a difference, wish I would of know CRM last year before I paud $325 on my PC's. MH give a better apperence, And with MH you can keep about anything you want.

But wouldn't i have to get 2 metal halids? and i said refugium because there like sumps. Also i want to get corals, thats the reason i want a sw tank. And if i wanted a sump how would i build one and what kind of light wouldi use for cheato.


If i get a long tank i would think i would need to halids and can i just get the kits and build one and they will be the same as the pre made?

Thanks
