I just upgrades my tank from 55 with 2 power HOB
filters to a 100 with 55 gal
sump and refugium. I'm on a budget so have been watching CL
for skimmer deals. I would like to get best used skimmer I can afford, which is only about $100 - $200. The closer to the $100 mark, the better. Needless to say, is been difficult especially locally.
I've found a couple of food deals but would require modifying my sump to make skimmer area larger and fuge smaller. I have pics posted in DIY forum.
Basically, would it be worth the modification on my sump to get the better skimmer? The deal I found most recently is for (2) Euro Reef skimmers (CS 8-2). One with the 5000 (sp?) pump and the other without (both for $150) Footprint is 11 x 13.5 x 24. My skimmer section is 10x12 currently.
Any and all advice would be much appreciated. If the suggestion is going with a lower quality skimmer, which would you suggest. I have one recommendation for Eshopps PSK 150 (Thanks, Carey!).
