ASM G-2. I'm probably going to get the ASM G-3. The ASM G Series are Euro-reef knock-offs. From what I've read the company split and ASM is the split off from ER.

Don't have any experience with those skimmers. I got AquaC Remora with MJ 1200 PH. I'm using it for my 75 gal reef,and it has been doing great job so far.JMO

i have that one on my 29g and it seems to work great. you have a pretty decent bio load in your 75 also. how long has it been running? do you feed with meaty foods or just pellets and flakes?

I have the Aqua C Urchin Pro on my 72G bowfront. I got it with the Mag 3 pump and could not be happier. I would suggest it.

Mine has been running 24/7 for 5 months. I do regular maintenance once a month with a small brush. I feed my fish with nori seaweed and flakes in the morning, and F1 or mysis shrimp at night.

I say good call by Phyl.

Based on previous responses by captivereefs.com to pretty much the same question...Euro reef was recommended ever so slightly over the Aqua C based on design and performance. ASM trumped Euro reef on price, same design. I don't think you can wrong with any of these 3.

I don't have a G-2... I was just recommending one to you for your tank. I have a built-into-my-wet-dry-doesn't-skim-to-save-its-aaaaa-life skimmer. I'm looking at the G3. The G series came highly recommended from a number of folks over on RC. After doing some research it looks like one I'd buy
