I found 1 of each a bubble magus NAC 6a internal protein skimmer which costs £158 or a reef octopus XP2000 internal sump cone skimmer which costs £399 is it more expensive cos it's more reliable or does it do separate things lol I'm a beginner c

They all do the same thing. The octopus might have a stronger pump but I'm not really sure. I just ordered the biggest octopus i could get lol.
