  • I need some advise

    My tank is about 300L. Is there any suggestion buying the skimmer with low power consumption and high efficiency (except BK, its really too big for me)?
    thx.
    I am using AB multi1000 at this situation.

    Maybe you can have a look at the Deltecs or HnS. Low power consumtion/very quiet/high efficiency. For Deltecs, the AP600 should do the trick or the APF600 even. HTH

        How about Grotech and ASM? Is that another good choice?

          Which GroTech?

          I think the ASM is more affordable but both are good skimmers. The GroTech can be run externally, i'm not sure the ASM can.

            Acctually BK is not very big. BK can be customized. My is only 48 cm tall.

                BK is great but I wouldn't put a $2000 skimmer on a 75 gallon tank

                  I also agree. BK using on a 75 gallon tank is not that suitable.
                  How about H&S??
                  Is that worthy??

                    Dear Orion76~

                    How about BK on a 100gallon? I know BK is great Skimmer but I do not know
                    It is proper to invest on 100gallon....Maybe H&S or Deltec is more suitable...
                    I do not know.....

                        I think HnS or euro-reef is suitable.

                            I am very satisfied with my Bk 200, because it is very efficient. Every day produce 0,5 liter of very dark skimmate. Before I had Tunze 235 , which produced only 0,1 liter of similar skimmate.

                              Let's put it this way, it won't do your aquarium any bad but unless you print money for a living there are other options which are just fine for a tank your size

                              You already have a Schuran which IMO is top of the line and at least as good as the H&S and Deltec skimmers.

                              Spend your money on acro colonies and enjoy your Schuran
