Bubble Magnus Curve 7

I am looking to upgrade my current skimmer..a Reef Octopus NWB-150. My tank is an Elos system 120 (about 93 US gallons + a 40 gallon Elos sump. I have around 125 pounds of liverock and 40 pound of sand. Im stocked heavy, so my question is, does anyone have an experience with Bubble Magnus, specifically the curve 7?

Just put a second skimmer if you want more skimmer filtration instead of upgrading the current one.

Replace this one if you don't have enough space or if you don't want to have to clean two skimmers.

I use Bubble Magus products. They are very good. that said, you really aren't upgrading by very much moving to the Curve 7. the air draw of the pump on the C7 is 450L/H, and the pump that you have on the Octo is 420L/H. Not much of an upgrade.
I would jump up to eh BM 220A and about double your efficiency.
