I was looking at the 6", but I am not sure of the clearance on that one. It's 24" tall. This one is only 2" shorter though.
I am going to have to take measurements when I get home.
Other than that how is this line of skimmer.
I was also looking at an AquaC EV120.
I've never had an aqua c. But I've only heard good things about both brands. I do think that the aquacs are shorter than most others. Like I said I really like my reef octopus, and them bubble blaster pumps look really impressive. I plan on upgrading mine within a year, but I'm really not even close to maxing mine out right now. But I have a super low bioload as of right now.
I might of bought the diablo the only thing I didn't like is that it's not easily upgradable to the bubble blaster pump. With the other one if you wanna upgrade it's as easy as unscrewing the union and hooking up the new one. But not taking that into consideration I would say the diablo.
I'm sure it's doable but I don't know if anyone has done it yet. So they finally changed the rating on the diablo? It was way overrated. There was a post, on another forum, from coralvue that said that the original rating was from the manufacturer and they hadn't really tested it yet to give it a more accurate rating.
