Anyone have used Tunze 9005 skimmer before?

Could you please give some actual personal experience/comments with this skimmer?

I am looking forward to buy this since it is not cheap I just want to check first before I finally committed to it.

Most important: Do they make a lot of noise???

This 9005 model is rated for up to 132g and my tank is a 132g do you think I should get 9010 which is for 264g? Will it overskim/overkill? Or is it better to have overskim than underskim?

I am currently going to use it for my FOWLR tank, may be reef in future not sure yet.

Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm going to try and get this moved to the General Hardware/Equipment, for better results.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Not familiar with it, but check these out. Love mine and I've heard others say the same. Aqua C EV series skimmers. Not noisy IMO either.


And yes, it's better to overskim.
