I am thinking of buying this skimmer, https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/essence-s-130-internal-protein-skimmer-reef-octopus.html. It is rated for a 75 gallon tank with a high bioload. I have a Red Sea 170, which is a 43 gallon tank I believe. would it be okay to use this or is it still too big for my size tank? I wanted to get an oversized one so that I can have more fish than I have now, which is only 5 in my current 30 gallon tank. What do you think? if its too much is there one smaller but from the same company? thanks
