You didn't upgrade. You basically just went with a different name for 100 dollars more.

Well what ive read, and seen on the reviews I liked it. I can actually find videos, and info that alot of people own them. I seen really good reviews and hardly any bad, unlike some of the other skimmers I was looking at. Everything I read on them people say you cant go wrong. Made in the usa and its been around for many years. I did watch like 7 videos on it from reef dynamics and they tell you what why and how for everything on the skimmer from the shape size and physics behind it. It may be some sort of advertisement and it may not also, they have more info I can find on it more than other skimmera. In which I liked. If it is just a different name I guess o'well. I liked it and many people use it, trust it, and love it.

What makes up 99% of a skimmers efficiency is the pump. the amount of air and water it pulls, along with how small it chops the bubbles.
You have a 6" reaction chamber, no bubble plate, and a pump that pulls 600-720lph air with 300 gph of water.
Check out the other skimmers in that price range. You can return it you know.

Check out sca 302 cone skimmer, it's a copy of the skimmers you listed and has the same pump (atman 2500). People are going to dog it because its a knock off, but I own one and it's a good skimmer. I have it on a setup about the same as yours, 135g+ 70g sump.
