due to awful financial crisis, i made up mind trying this brand that is recommended by some friends.

cuz i dont like using a cabinet but a stand or frame instead, i do need a quiet model.

so how'bout vertex in100, is it loud and efficient enough for a some 100 gallon tank? the sump is 20 gallon.

How is settling for a Vertex a crisis? These skimmers are great and not noisy at all. Go with the IN180 and you wont be dissappointed.

+1 I have the IN180 and it is SUPER quiet. The pump on it has ALWAYS started everytime! Pulls nice skim too! Better than my Reef octo Dwb200 did!

I wouldn't say it's totally silent, of course, I dont have doors on my stand. I can sleep on the couch six feet from the skimmer and it does not bother me. It's also next to the tv, and I don't have to turn it up real high to drown out the skimmer pump. My fans on my NEP are louder. It's a very nice skimmer. I'm running an in-100 on my 75 with about a 20 gallon total sump volume. You might be pushing it with the in-100 on that size tank, but I couldn't say for sure. It seems to work well on my tank and it's not much smaller than yours.
