I have an eshopps psk150 on my 125g. I happen to like mine very much, took a bit to get it dialed in right but it produces more skimmate than my reef octopus thats on my 90g.

I picked up a skimmer today so to layout what I have so far....

75g acrylic tank, center back overflow, with two returns
25g custom acrylic sump
Eshopps PSK 100 Skimmer
Hydor Koralia Evolution wavemaker
Current USA Nova Extreme Pro T5 HO

I plan on filling the tank and beginning the build when I go on vacation in a few weeks.

So I have the set up filled and all of the plumbing seems to be working well so far. I have 160lbs of live sand, creating a 4" deep sand bed, and 60 lbs of Manado live rock.
