The Marineland Marine In sump series 100 gallon should fit.The pump fits under the skimmer itself.I have the 300 gallon model in my sump for my 75 gallon and it works great.

Guys and gals, please check out these (4) skimmers that I have found (Thanks Rick), and let me know your opinions on the one I should get. I saw a review of the sump and I believe they were using Eshoppes, and the Aqeon site shows the coralife skimmer. Anyway, take a look please, and let me know what's up.

Thanks ahead of time.

I have the eshopps psk 150 running in my 125g and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it. Afterit broke in it removes a lot of gunk. And I mean some stinky nasty stuff...just was a bit**ch to adjust just right. lol

Well, I know you like your eshopps, bubble magus is supposedly legendary, Marineland was given a good review by Ricksreef, and the coralife is rated for the biggest tank, up to 125 gallons.

This is harder than I thought!

From what I;ve read the coralife isnt all its cracked up to be. AHve you looked at the reef octopus ones? They are also legendary lol I mean ALOT of people swear by them. They were a tad out of my budget so i didnt get one. I got the eshopps for like $100 bucks so i couldnt pass it up.

Yeah, I have the money for whatever, but no matter how hard I tried, I could not find a Octopus small enough! I'll triple check, cause that's what I really wanted. Honestly though, you telling that the eshopps is good, means a lot, so quite frankly, that is almost assuredly the way I will go.
