Buying a skimmer

Well I think with part of my taxes I need to get a good skimmer for my tank. (46G + 20G sump) I am currently running a AquaC Remora HOB in the sump and it does ok but im sure its not enough. I am trying to decide between a couple. I am limited on space. Only have about a 10x12x 28T" area. Help me out guys.


Reef Octopus NWB150 6


Bubble Magus BM-NAC7 Cone Protein Skimmer - Bulk Reef Supply

ASM G-1
ASM Protein Skimmers

Coralife Super Skimmer Needle Wheel

Any one of those will work better than the Remora (assuming you are referring to the 125 coralife skimmer, and not the 65). I would go with either the Octo or the BM out of your choices.

I was thinking the octo or the asm but leaning toward the octo. Cant really beat the price and its proven itself.

The ASM is crapola compared to the octo. If you get a chance to check them out side by side, you will see what I mean.

I had the G4X on my old system and transferred to the comparable octo (MSX, which is the same skimmer)....


The build quality is a world of difference. Even the materials used.
