Skimmer design suggestion?


New member
I'm looking to DIY a new skimmer. I've got the skills to build pretty much anything, but have been out of the hobby a little while and am not sure what the current favorite design is. I've historically liked the Beckett head skimmers, but am considering building a copy of the Aqua C skimmers. The main tank is only 37 gallons, but its basement sumped to a 100 gallon frag vat/refugium with a 29 gallon surge tank (5 actual gallons of surge). Total water volume is probably around 100-120 gallons. I've got several spare pumps and can power pretty much whatever, other an a needle wheel, which I'd have to buy a new pump for. Thanks for the help!
