That is a very good skimmer, but IMO not enough for a 360g tank. Check out the MSX250 or MSX300.

Quick question. On a huge tank, can you use 2 skimmers or just get 1 honkin big one?

Thanks cccapt did not know if MSX skimmers where good or not
I will most likely go with the 300 as I prolly will have a heavy bio load in the end

Yes you can use more then one skimmer on a system. People usually spring for one large one since the price of 2 smaller ones is usually higher then the large.

The guy that I got the 150 from has a 450g reef and a 360g pred tank and runs 2 Euro-Reefs on his system.
