It's all about fore thought, plan for the future lol. They should have something rated for your system and load.

Thanks. Things are going well. In terms of forethought, that's what the nwb150 is for!

Ok, so I have begun researching. Right now, I'm thinking about a bubble magus. This one to be exact. Bubble Magus NAC-Series In-Sump Needle Wheel Protein Skimmers w/ Bubble Plate

Other than that, things continue as normal. Tomorrow the MP40 arrives with the rest of the garbage I ordered that isn't worth mention.

I've continued researching skimmers. The AquaC ones are interesting to say the least. Still very undecided.
Fed the tank and pulled out some algae here and there. Minor stuff. Only neat thing was seeing some astera stars up on the back glass. Been awhile since I've seen any, so kinda cool.

Finally installed the mp40. Really cool. I put it off to the side of the aquascape rather than infront of the rocks. Just made good sense that way. Here is a quick pic of it.

I just recently installed an eshopps skimmer on a frag tank at my store that I had leftover from selling them a while back. Finally pulled it out of the box and set it up. Gotta say the little bugger works quite well and s quiet. I have a Reef Octopus Diablo to install next so jury is out on that as far as skimming but I mat say between the two the Eshapos goes together much easier & fully disassembles for cleaning.

Nice on the MP40! Don't get too attached to its placement.... I've moved mine up/down/left/right about a dozen times since I put my MP10 on... Any thoughts on the mode you will run?

I've already moved the MP40 once. Pretty optimal place right now. It is currently in tidal swell mode. Jury is out. I originally wanted short pulse, but didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
Keith, how is the skimming out of the Eshopps? Just really need to get a skimmer that'll work on this system.

I am actually very happy with the skimming. It is foaming like a monster and was actually skimming same day as it was setup.
