Skimmer wise I don't think brs carries anything larger then 800 gallons and 2' tall so I would need 2-3 of those maybe.... There won't be any fish so I'm thinking I can get away with the low end with no issues at all. As for external pumps I'm looking at the reeflo barracuda/hammerhead hybrid 6000/4590 external pumps right now to be the heart of the system. Maybe one per spillway and one for all the frag tanks.

Maybe an algae scrubber would be better than multiple skimmers.

I probably will utilize an algae scrubber but I found a 62" skimmer rated up to 3000 gallons for $2216 that I will be using to skim the spillways. For the frag tanks ill just be getting a bubble maggus skimmer more then likely since it'll only be about 250 gallons.

To be honest we probably won't even have the money to pay ourselves for the first few months with paying back loans and investors and a payroll wouldn't even be possible til roughly 18 months for anyone but ourselves lol.. hopefully though my 5-7 yr plan is have a crew run it and we just pop in to make sure everything is still running ok lol.

Ya I know lol just thought I'd put it out there that this is by no means a get rich quick plan but will be like most other start up businesses. On the other hand we will need employees eventually hopefully so ill either have to have someone relocate or I'd have to train someone cause the reefing community in my area is very very small sadly which is why a website and eBay will be our main sales.

Also don't forget to take your corals to local frag swaps to advertise for the shop if people let you.
