Hello reefers, I have been protein skimmer-less for about 3 months now because my icecap nano burned out on me and I could use recommendations for something better. My tank is 65 gallons with a 10 gallon sump which I plan to upgrade to a 20 tall soon which means I'll be able to hold a better size skimmer. The tank is a mixed reef, sps lps, softies, probably close to 60 pieces, and is what id consider to be heavily stocked, I have an anthias, 2 clownfish, 2 damsels, a yellow watchman, a mandarin, and a cardinal. I have also been battling algae in the display which wasn't a problem before my skimmer crapped out and was just in the sump, now necessitating my need for a new protein skimmer. I would prefer to spend less than 180- 200$ on it. It would also be nice if it was a brand I could easily get replacement parts for im the event something stops working or breaks. If anyone has any recommendations, taking into consideration my setup; or just want to share what brand you use that would be great. Thanks!
