I have a 125 pretty heavy loaded with corals and fish. Should I run my skimmer 24 7?
Yes, it will pull out doc's and keep your orp up.
75 gallon sump and a 75-gallon main tank what would you suggest would be a good protein skimmer for that size
Wow, that's a huge sump . Mine is 45 gallon Eshoppes. With a eshoppes skimmer on a 185 gallon mixed reef. And my skimmer is a smaller one, rated for a 150 gallon.
Skimmer and sump
Looking for reef octopuc classic 90 hob in india. Cannot find a good source. Please help if any reef octo manufacturer in here.
Does it have to be that specific skimmer. Can you see if you can get a JNS (aka aquamaxx in the US) HOB. They make a great HOB skimmer.
I want in India. We have 220v here. In usa its 110v
Yes, JNS is the actual brand that is not US based.
Oh.. didnt know tht.. will check.. they work well?
Have a total water volume of 72 gallons and I was not sure in between the NYOS 120 or 160, I have a heavy bioload nine fish and 34 corals mostly SPS colonies, i feed twice a day the fish and every other day the corals with a mix of roids, reef chili and RSM Energy in between 4 to 5 mL of the whole mix. I pulled the trigger with the 160 but I've been reading the 160 is going to be way too efficient I will be pulling pretty much everything out of the water do you think it's a good idea to return to 160 and better get the 120, please need your help because I'm still able to do the switch, thanks to all the fellow reefers and happy reefing to everybody.
I'm not familiar with those skimmers but I can tell you that a skimmer can be too large to effectively skim, but it will not hurt your tank. (Just your wallet.)
From all my research NYOS skimmers are the best. I would go for the 160. Reason being your bio load. I would also check out icecap skimmers. They cost less and work just as well. They are very new on the market only about a year or so. I have mine for 6 months and it's amazing. You can check it out on YouTube
