    Previously an SRO2000 which was a beast, however I've switched the Bubble Magnus curve 5 due to the much smaller footprint

    few things to check on skimmer are not only break in time, noise but also maintenance need over time .. for example the HOB1 skimmer is a huge winner among cube tanks. It runs great, start is easy, break in time near zero. HOWEVER check the reviews .. note that nearly none of them are after 3-6 months of ownership .. the HOB1 has a nasty habit of clogging where the airline goes into the pump elbow. Takes 6 months but clogs up over time then nearly no air.
