:D Hi, in the future I will need to get a skimmer for my large future tank. Do you think for a 125 gallon tank a 135 gal max. Euro Reef ,or a 200 gal ASM skimmer is best. The Euro Reef is alot more expensive so which would you buy ? Thanks :o

I don't think it matters, I would go for the one that does 200 gallons.

i did a search for both products on the web and found that asm skimmers are shuting down, hence i would get the euro reef cos if it brakes it will be easier to get replacment parts i also think the euro reef looks like the better quality on of the two

Of you could get a cheaper Coralife if they have one big enough. If you want I can PM you the link.

The only one in the coralife chain is the coralife 220 super skimmer. I have that on a 120 gallon tank and it does a wonderful job.

:D Hi guys., thanks for the replys, the Euro Reef is about 350.00. I think the ASM is out on my list. I want something thats going to last 5 + years or so. , and is not loud etc. I know freshwater fish but Im new to salt, I know a different world ! Theres also Deltec, which is very expensive so any more thoughts ? PS is the Coralife super skimmer quite ? How much is the Large model ? Thanks

Since you mentioned wanting it to last 5 years or more cross the coralife off the list. ASM and Euroreef use the same pumps on some models, they will both last a long time. Deltec would be the ultimate luxury. However the money you save buying an ER or ASM could be put to good use elsewhere such as lighting, buckets of salt, an RO unit etc...
