Skimmer for 90Gal tank - Best (Not Most Expensive)?
I have a Coralife 65g skimmer right now running in my 90g tank. With my sump I am probably running 100g of water.
The Coralife skimmer works okay, but constantly get's clogged then doesn't work, so unless I take it out every few days and clean it out, it's not working.
I am looking for a better skimmer that maybe doesn't clog up like that and that is rated for a atleast 100g, possibly 125g or 150g.
I don't really have the money to spend $300+ on a new skimmer but I want a good one. The other issue is that I have a height requirement of no more then 21" tall. The foot print isn't a huge issue as I have room in the sump.
I was looking at the Hydor Performer Skimmer 405, but it's about $300 which is a bit too expensive for me. I will consier it if it's one of the best options but I'd prefer to find something cheaper.
I was also looking at the Eshopps In-Sump Protein Skimmers PSK-150 @ $169.99, but it's 22" tall and would be extremely tight, which means I probably wouldn't be able to get the cup off.
What suggestions do you guys have?
