Skimmer oversized?

Or is that possible? I have an Aqua C EV 180 used on my old 155g.

Ya think I can still use it on my 90g? I'm guessing so since it is rated for 60 to 200 gallons.

I think you will be just fine with that skimmer. I ran an ASM G4X on my 72g system and then again on my 120.

I don't think it's possible to oversize a skimmer. Advice I heard when I was setting up my tank - which I still believe is good advice - was to get as BIG of a skimmer as I physically could... within reason, of course! That's why I'm running the Remora Pro on a 46g.
