Protein Skimmer recommendation
Hi guys I just bought a 55 gallon tank (uncles 180 that he was going to give to me has a dirty big crack in it) and was wondering what Protein skimmer would be good for it. I don't want to spend to much but still want it to work. I also plan on getting a sump (20 gallon), so an in sump skimmer would be preferable. I have as much head room as i want as ill be building a new stand for the tank soon. Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance.
I can recommend skimmers ranging from $100 to $800. The needs of the tank will determine the cost. So, what are you looking to do?
I was thinking a reef tank. Couple clowns, flame angel, royal gramma maybe a yellow tang if it would fit? Corals, CUC live rock, live sand. I also have a refugium planned.
I want a skimmer that would would just help the whole system in getting rid of the nitrates, so by "work" i just meant "not be garbage".
I was thinking the 125g Coralife Needlewheel Skimmer. It had good reviews but seemed a little cheap at $150.
