    Thanks for the suggestion, there is a aquamaxx 1.5 on eBay that im watching but I think in tank is probably a better choice like you said. The two skimmers you listed are recommended for tanks 3-4x my size so I was wondering if that much skimmer is needed or even beneficial.

    I ran a coneS CO-1 when they first came out on my 39 with little 10 gal sump and it skimmed like a beast. I created a thread on it a few years back. It wasn't on R2R so i dont want to list the thread but it will skim a 30.

    AMs load ranges are overated in my opinion on their smaller skimmers.

    I’m having difficulty picking a slimmer for my upcoming build.

    I am building a 480 gallon display, which will have about 150 gallon sump. I’m considering bubble king deluxe external 300 or deluxe external 400. The tank will be well stocked and sps dominant. Which of these skimmers is more appropriate for my size system?
