Ok so I ordered the reef octopus , I have now the eshopps 300 sump. For some reason I feel like the proflex is better then the eshopps . Are they pretty much the same ?? And I'm just over thinking. Lol

If the sump holds water and has enough room for everything then you done good.

The proflex is kinda small on space inside so the eshopps sump is a good deal. I used the eshopps rs200 for a couple years and found it to be perfect for my needs.

What tank was the eshopps on?

I had the eshopps sump, the refugium model, on my 125g. It was a pain to find a skimemr to fit, but the eshopps 150 one fit right in. I later stopped using the refugium section and put a reef octopus skimmer in the middle section.

I really liked the 125g, it took a few years bit I was very fond of the result. On a good note though, I got $800 for it and the new 180g setup was only $500 so I actually made out on the upgrade.

Well, looks like the 40g is coming along, getting my usual first appearance of red slime. :-( Happens in every single tank I start it seems. Will dose some chemiclean in a few days if it doesnt subside. All parameters are at 0 so not quite sure where the excess nutrients are coming from. Probably a false negative I guess lol.

The new baby clowns are adorable! I love just watching them clown around. lol
The green sinularia that Mr x gave me is doing really well now too. It was kinda touch and go for a few days but they are open wide and look great.
I wont be adding any fish this week I don't think, just addd the clowns last week so wanna let the tank settle for a bit before adding new stock.
Not sure what the next fish will be.....Looking at another citron goby, some clown gobies and maybe a small handful of chromis to give the tank some movement.

Very good price! You don't have to see your tanks to know they are amazing!

I have some of that green singularia from mr. X as well, strange to think that different pieces of the same organism can exist hundreds of miles apart
