Aquariums are ecosystems we are privileged to own, and should be treated with the full level of care we can supply

The saying is normally that HOB and Internal skimmers will not stand up to an In-Sump or Stand Alone skimmer...
Very few people can house a stand alone skimmer, along with the sump they need inside of their stand..

In sump I feel like is just way more convenient to use. Just want good quality and silent

What makes you say that? I'm just curious.

Doesn't take up much space. I don't have much room for anything else. Just looking for something reliable.

I run an ASM G1 on my 90 gallon reef and an ASM G3+ on my 180 gallon reef. I am happy with both. Skim really well and once they are set they don't need adjustment.
