what skimmer?

I only have a cheapo CPR BakPak 2 right now. I am thinking of upgrading to a new skimmer. The system is about 75 gallon.

What in-sump skimmer would be recommended?

Thanks.

Well I've only ever had one so its not much of a knowledge base beyond that and the research I did before buying it,but I really like the coralife.

No doubt it works ime.

You could go with the Aqua C Urchin. I haven't used the urchin but I do have the remora and I love it.

The coral life is OK, but can flood on occasion. It's also an ugly thing.
A skimmer I realise is not a place to go cheap. Jeff
