I just bought the tunze one yesterday. I'm hoping it will be as good as the reef octopus or the eshopps. "-)

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

For a 50g I would be looking at other options, the tunze I picked up is for a 155g tank. LOL I only got it cause of its size as it has to fit into a 16g tank.

Have you looked at the reef octopus skimmers? Or even the eshopps psk 100?

As for your dilemma about the tunze vs the eshoppes, The tunze's air draw is 500 liters per hour, and the sk-400(psk-150) draws 450 liters, so I would think the tunze is slightly better.
