Help choosing a protein skimmer.
I will have a sump for this tank, the exact size is also yet to be determined, so the skimmer will be in-sump. I'll get the largest sump I can that will fit underneath the stand.
MarineDepot seems to have the best prices. The ones that I'm currently looking at are:
AquaC Urchin Pro w/ Mag3 pump - $227
AquaC EV120 w/Mag5 pump - $340
Euroreef ES5-3 w/Sedra 3500 pump-$248
If price is any indication of performance and quality, it looks like the EV120 is best. Is it $100 better ES5-3?
Is the ES5-3 better than the Urchin Pro?
I've also read a lot about GEO skimmers, but their site has no information about what they offer.
Any recommendations and/or experience is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
