Skimmer for 180 mixed reef??????


Premium Member
I am planning on changing my skimmer for my 180 gal mixed reef.
Fish in tank are 3 tangs about 4" each, 1 angel about 4", 3 wrasses, a few anthias and a small clown.

I am thinking on a Super Reef Octopus SRO-3000SSS 8" Space Saver Protein Skimmer because I don't have a lot of room in my sump.

any thoughts??


I personally don't care for the space saver sro models. Does it have to be a space saver? You got room for an external?

I have a 210gal with 7 tangs currently (plus another 12 fish) and am running a sro3000int and everything is great.

I have heard good things about the aquamaxx skimmers too.
