so I have been shopping around for good skimmers for a 40 gallon tank and have come up with two choices that seemed to have ok reviews my budget for the skimmer is around $125 so if you have any other suggestions......so suggest away.
the skimmer will be in a 20 gallon sump not a HOB
protein skimmer because I don't want to risk if it will leak or not.
the aquarium is drilled and going to have a good bio load amount about 4-5 fish worth.
hopefully the tank will be a full blown reef tank in a few years so I don´t want something that will crap out in a few years I want something that will last these are what I have so far I am leaning towards the Eshopps skimmer but if someone has had a bad experience then i might get the Odyssea skimmer.
Odyssea PS160 Protein Skimmer with Pump, 100-Gallon
Eshopps PSK 100 In Sump Protein Skimmer, 75-100 Gal
any suggestions would be helpful
