ok so I bid on the coralife super skimmer 125gal on ebay posted above up to 107.00 and got outbid in the last few seconds so I just got a simple follow up question. Which is better: the coralife super skimmer 125 gal or the Reef Octopus BH 100 (the one the local shop suggested)?

thanks

I only have experience with the SuperSkimmer and I liked it.

I was recommended a needle wheel 65 for my 46 bow (posted a link to a very reasonable new one from Amazon). The 125 is on amazon for 123.99 new (and I am sure shipping would be cheaper and faster than a private seller on ebay.

thanks im looking at that one too but im worried ill need a bigger one if i eventually get some corals and such. or do you think that one is big enough? also, what does anyone know about the seaclone 150? it was recommended at petco (i know...haha) but just making sure i get what i need at the best price available.

Thanks in advance

So i guess my main question is: For the price, would i get the most out of the super skimmer needle wheel (65 gal) Amazon.com: Super Skimmer with Needle Wheel - Up to 65 Gallon: Home & Garden , the coralife 125 gal, or the seaclone 150? Thanks again for helpin a noob

my opinion, since I already have a seaclone, would be to go with the coralife 125, if it is within your budget...if not then maybe the seaclone 150, but get ready to adjust it a few times a week...:)

If I had to choose, I would buy the Coralife125 as my first selection, with the Reef Octopus BH100 a very close second. The SeaClone would only be a viable option if you were getting an amazing price. Otherwise, it does not compete with these other 2 models for a similar price range.

thanks everyone who responded, i ended up ordering the coralife 125 last night for 125$, just a little over my original budget but i think it will be worth it!

Thanks again!
