This has been on my mind for a bit...
I'm using an old (but still cranking) Euro Reef CS5-2 skimmer with a Sedra 3500 pump. It says it's rated for 75 gal
. Well, this was ok when I had a 60 gal
, but I now have a 140 with that 60 as a sump.
I was going to upgrade and saw the ASM G2 which says 200 gal
, but uses the same Sedra 3500 that I have.
The ASM G2 is 4 inches taller, and about 1.5 inches thicker in diameter, which I'm sure affects the contact time the bubbles have with the water.
I know my skimmer produces nice green liquid that I collect into a gallon water bottle. But what I'm not sure is if I really need to upgrade it or not. I have a fowlr
(may do corals later once I get rid of this problem I have for the moment...).
What do you think... keep or replace?
