birthday present

i currently have a Seaclone 150 protein skimmer, and a huge eheim pro 2 fillter, set up to my 90 gallon reef tank. i have a choice of upgrading one thing on my tank and im wondering which thing would be most beneficial for my tank. i want my soft corals to thrive and i want to be able to "overstock" my tank.

do you think i should upgrade my skimmer, if so which one should i buy.

Skimmer is always a better choice than a filter IMO. How much LR do you have?

Someone else will have to give you info on a HOB. I have no experience. I just would not spend more money on a filter.

I hear good things about the remora pro hang on's.
You can get it with the extra addon compartment that allows you to run carbon or whatever and it also stops the bubbles.

Coralife Super Skimmer is great for the low price! You should really consider it

I'm with nccmike on this one, go with the Remora Pro. They are excellent skimmers! Check on ebay for some deals on it.

I have a Coralife skimmer and like it but it’s a monster sized skimmer and I’d only use in a sump personally.

If looking for a quality HOB for a 90 gal I would only consider the AquaC Remora Pro due to it’s excellent skimming and slim profile. You should be able to get it for $250 or less.

This is the cheapest I've found it with a pump $230 with shipping.
