Ok, so I have some skimmer issues. lol
I have a couple tanks but would like to keep the skimmers in place on the other tanks so I can't swap skimmers around like i am used to.
The 60g rimless should be going back up in a few days and the skimmer i was using, an eshopps in sump psk150 seems to have either a bad impeller or pump, can;t determine which. It;s out of warranty of course. :-(
I can get a new impeller for I think $30 or a new pump for $52. I was running this skimmer on my 125g reef tank and it did an excellent job, so much so that i bought another one and its running under my 90g.
I guess the issue comes into play in that I will have very very little room under the 60g, even with the new stand I am getting. The new stand is only taller, not wider so I still have issues with the sump as well. I have been looking around at skimmers and found this one
Tunze Comline DOC Protein Skimmer
The one I found is $170 used but in immaculate shape, its regularly $286 so its quite the deal.
I can find the money for the new skimmer but should I? I know I hated working in the sump before with the eshopps full size skimmer under the 60g so i anticipate that it will suck still.
Anyone have any opinions or thoughts? Kinda need an answer soon yes or no but just can;t decide. lol
Sorry for this being sooooo long, its like 6 am and I'm rambling! LOL
