Skimmers...which one to choose for 90 gallon
I have everything chosen for my 90 Gallon Reef....except for the Skimmer.
So many to choose from....from cheap to outragous prices. My limit is around $250.
I have seen locally the Amiracle and Pro-Clear Venturi...anyone ever use any of these?? They look okay...but are they loud in a house setting? I heard the Pro-Clear was hard to clean. Which size should I get for a 90 Gallon.
Others I am considering are the: ASM G2 (the G3 will NOT fit under my tank) or the Octopus NW-110 Needle-Wheel.
Does anyone else have any recommendations?? Except for lights...this looks to be the most expensive part of my setup...and I would like to make a good decision.
