Undersize skimmer

I have a reef octopus skimmer that rate at 100 gallons. However, my tank is 210 gallon size with fishes and corals. Will this be adequate or should I get a bigger skimmer ?

Always a good idea to get an over rated skimmer if you have the space and $ for it. I have a slightly underated skimmer for my tank but use gfo and biopellets. My nitrates and phosphates are near 0 with small daily feedings. It really depends on your bio load and other equipment too.

My fishes and corals r happy without any added chemicals for the past 9 months or so. However, I do have to empty the skimmer cup almost daily
