I'm looking buying a new skimmer and torn between 2 skimmers. I'm asking for your experienced opinions about the 2 skimmers.

My current set up is a 180 gal DT, with 75 gal sump. Tank has been running about 10 months. Have some softies, and LPS. Plan is to grow both but not load it down with them and it would be over the next year or so.

Skimmers:

ASM G4XXX skimmer - G-4XX 450 gal tank rating
1 - Sedra 15000 pump
8.5" 13x14" 30" dimension

or

Bubble Magus Curve 9 - Tank Rating: 900L--1500L(240G-400G)
pump: ROCK - SP4000
Pump specs: 20W, 220V 50Hz /110V 60Hz
Dimensions: 235×295×600mm(9.25" * 11.6" * 23.6")
Water Level :9.5"-11"

Usually confused...
I have heard good things about both skimmers, but haven't personally used either. One warning in the mag us skimmer is make sure where you are ordering from is sending you a rock pump with 110 volt capability. A couple overseas vendors have great prices on their bubble magus skimmers, but they are not US power compatible.

Thanks for the advise. My plan is to order from my LFS who is a dealer for both.
