Really haven't followed the hobby for the last few years, so I'm here for some guidance. :)

It's time to upgrade skimmers, as my old Skimz SV203 just can't keep up with a somewhat heavy stocked 260g (320g volume). I am between these three skimmers. AquaMaxx Cone S CO-5, Bubble Magus Curve B10 or Bubble Magus D10. I've done a bit a research, but there aren't a ton of reviews for any of them. Or if I should be looking at another brand?

I like the bubble magus. At their price point they are a great value. I have one now and it’s not as finicky and produces a nice constant foam head. I’m looking at the A8 or d8 for my upgrade

I only just started reefing. I did some research and purchased the aquamax cone s for my 220 gallon tank. Took about 3 weeks to brake in and produces a nice skim. Collection cup is easy to clean as well. It’s a big skimmer just make sure it fits. Hoped this helps somewhat
