I never used a Tunze but hear they are very good skimmers. i have a G3 and it works awesome, Figure on 11x12 to make it fit. If you do any mads recirc or gate valave that will involve more space. You can usually find a G3 for around $250:00

I got my G3 in a 11x12 section of my 30 gallon sump and there aint a lot of spare room. Its in around 9 inches of water and I made a lexan table for the skimmer to sit on so its actually in around 7 inches. It works great dark, funky, skimate that makes you gag when you empty the cup.

I have used both Tunze and ASM skimmers. The ASM should produce darker, smellier skimmate. But, the Tunze pump is likely to last longer/be more reliable.

I am running a G2 on my 90 gallon tank and it produces nasty nasty stuff! I have been really happy with mine. I would suggest the gate valve mod since it allows you to really fine tune the skimmer (wetter vs. drier skimmate).

If you are considering a G3, for roughly the same height you can get a G4x with a sedra 9000! (hint: I wish I had upgraded my G2 before I got it)

Thinking of the G2 for my 90gal. It's rated for 150 gallons. Anyone else think the G3 is overkill for a 90?
