I'm leaning towards the Remora Pro S
are there issues with this skimmer?
I've never heard any good things about any of the remoras
Oh come on. They are loud enough to let you know its running. That has to be good right?
I am a fan if the Aquac EV line. I've only heard how loud the remoras are but they can skim. I'd be curious though how it would perform with the new Neptune PMUP. Its quite and powerful.
What bioload you got. I don't think a single one of this will be powerful enough. Better of of with the reefocto. The clone s HOB aquamaxx is nice too
currently 0 bio load cause the tank is still in the set up process. I just getting the items i know i need. so when my steel stand is finished, im ready to set up. It will be a 100 gallon FOWLR tank.
Then most anything will work
but eventually will want some corals.
Lol killing me.. the aquamaxx clone s HOB would be my choice. Has the highest bioload handling
sorry for the confusion!!! haha, i was looking at that model too.
You might even be able to use an Urchin model internally....not positive of the dimensions, but they're small!
It's a well-proven, classic design. Very adjustable and upgradable. Easy to clean. Uses any normal pump in the desired flow range.
Since they sold a million of them, it's not too hard to find one for sale used if you're patient too....usually around $100.
Needlewheel skimmers get all the buzz, but I don't pay attention to that – they aren't the only kind that work.
Hello to all the skimmer specialists, have a simple question, my total water volume is 62 gallons I want to know if a NYOS 160 Will be overkill or if better the NYOS 120, was looking to buy the 160 because in the event of upgrading tank size I will be OK with the skimmer. I have mostly SPS and chalices, thanks in advance!!!!
U will be fine with both but in the case of upgrading I would go for the 160
But the 160 I can use it 24/7? Or pretty much will pull all the nutrients from the water or can I set it up on the timer from my controller?
Skimmers have been shown to remove at most around 30-40% of the gunk we'd like them to, so that's not the problem.
The problem with "too big" is that it can be too big to work properly based on the small amount of nutrients available in a "too small" tank.
They have that great spray injection technology from 1992, and make fabulous paper weights. Just don't get a skimmer and do water changes if your leaning towards the remora.
So pretty much based on your comment that I really appreciate it, do you recommend better go with the NYOS 120 instead of the 160? Thank you so much it's just that I'm ready to do the order so I don't want to be overkill but in the meantime I don't want to be either in the lower end opposite.
An Icecap K2-50 might fit. I got one in the back of my biocube.
If you want the nyos get the 120 as its the right size for 60g, the 160 is overkill
