    Hi everyone ,

    I have a 20 gallon reef with 3 fishes. Currently using fulval ps2 skimmer but I'm wondering if I can upgrade it to some thing like aquaxxmax 1.5 HOB?
    I have like 25 no3 and 0.08 po4 last couple week, but now I have drop them to 0.04 no3 and 8 po4 by a 40% water change and adding nopox. I'm using red sea nopox 1.4 ml per day, small cheato in the back sump, and also running chemi-pure elite as well. Am I over killing?

    Go for it. The aquamaxx HOB skimmers are amazing. You won't be disappointed.

    Btw, I'm adding some more sps in. Should I also invest into a bigger sump like a 30 gallon sump lol?

    My current tank is mostly LPs
