I'm using the remora right now on this 40b. I am in search of a skimmer, in sump, for my 60g tank that I am almost ready to re-start.
What size is your tank and do you have alot of fish? That will help pick a good skimmer for you.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I've yet to stock my tank, I've got a 75 gal. Just got a pro flex model 2 sump . Trying to put my pieces in place. Also purchased 2 Hydra lights from aquaillumination.

Nice! I bet you'll be satisfied with the hydras.

With that sump I believe you might be somewhat limited as far as space for a skimmer. I have had and continue to have that issue. Do you know how big the skimmer section is?

I had the same dimension available and used an eshopps psk150 skimmer. I liked it so much I bought another one for a different tank. lol

I really like the new orbuit lighting, I actually had to turn it down to coral acclimation setting, I burned a little bit of my stunner chalice. I expect them to do well over the long run on this particular tank.
