Hi - first post here. Ordered the WB Marine X 110.4 This will be my largest tank to date. My current JBJ 24G Cube has been going strong for 15 years (still have my original Clown). Just wondering what a good return pump and skimmer would be for a tank this size? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

BTW - here's my current setup. Hood was removed for an AI16. Marlin will stay in the JBJ, Yellow Guy (that's his name!) will move to the bigger home..

Good reviews on both of these:

Bubble Magus Curve 5 Protein Skimmer​

Reef Octopus Classic 110​

both were advertised for tanks of about 130G - my WB is about 100G total (display and sump). Since I'm a first time skimmer owner is it better to buy one rated for an even larger tank? Thoughts?

Finally setup yesterday - I'm very pleased with my 110.4. A couple of issues with building the cabinet (I have the details in my build thread). I'll be working on a control board and cable management while I wait for this beauty to get ready for tenants. My rock has cycled for over 2 months so I shouldn't have to wait too long. Looking forward to continuing this journey!
