Ahh. That's awesome. I don't have a sump. I would definitely go with a cone skimmer if it were me. I really love reef octopus products, personally.

I love my reef octopus skimmer that I have on my 135. The sca skimmer is not a big name skimmer, but the reviews are good. The eshopps is good on the price. That's why I'm on he fence about them.

I've always heard good things about eshopps, but never had anything of theirs personally. Never heard of sca.

My wrasse is finding a new home today.

Is it okay to set two hammer corals close together?

Lol. Thank you! It has changed A LOT, but I've been really busy and haven't had time to update. I'm in the process of moving so once I get it moved and everyone is happy I will post an update. And a 180 is a good sized tank. I'm thinking I'll have a 55 soon. My boyfriend is just going to move his to my house and we are going to combine them.

Thank you Greg! I thought so, just wanted to double check.

im following now. surprisingly enough I never came across your threads. oh and Bubble Magus all the way. I can def understand about the big tank costing a small fortune. I ordered 400g worth of salt 1.5 months ago and im already almost through 200g of it...whoops.

Thank you!! I upgraded my tank, you should check out my 55 gallon thread. it's a new upgrade, but an old thread so you can see how ridiculously much I've learned.

The salt gets expensive so fast, it's crazy. I'm hoping for an RODI system for Christmas. That should help with some of the cost.
