Looking for review on certain skimmers.
Hi there, I have been searching for a quality skimmer that is the best bang for the buck. I don't need to go crazy but I do want something good.

I plan to get a 90 or 120 gallon tank, whichever is available at the time of upgrade in a few months, and I need a skimmer that will handle that and a sump, which will probably be another 30 or 40 gallons.

How are the following skimmers, and please do offer others.

1) Coralife series

2) PC needle wheel skimmer rated up to 200 gallons

3)Vertex 180

I would not recommend any of these. For the price, you would be better suited with a Berlin Skimmer or an ASM. These skimmer have much better reviews on internet forums and are similar in price.
Check out both here:
