ASM will do the job but I dont think you will get a G3 for 200. Might have to look at the Octopus line.


New member
can you save up a bit and go for $350 or so? I'd pick up at least an ASM G3, then do a recirculation mod on it. That would be great.


New member
soo is an asm pretty much a plug and play type of system..

i dont know much about skimmers soo iwanna just get one that i can gie it a vinegar bath then plug it in let it break in the watch it skimmer

reeftanksupply.com Pacific Coast PS3000 same dimensions (basically) as G-3 and $30.00 cheaper. I've had a PC for a few months and the quality is better than ASM. If you see them side by side the difference is very clear.


New member
ive never hear of the PC PS3000.. can anyone tell me any more about them

also ya ive thought about css 125... are they loud.. are they pretty much plug and play?

You could probably pick up a ASM G3 for $200 or so in the selling forums here. For the money, this is probably one of the better skimmers until you get up to the Euro-reefs, Deltecs and Bubble Kings.
