Hello,

I am having trouble deciding which Skimmer for my tank. I am deciding between these 3 options:

9002 Nano
9005
or Reefpack 200

I have a 34g cadlights tank, Will be a mixed tank with some sps, lps, zoas, 3-4 fish, shrimp, crabs, and maybe a clam.

Was wondering if the 9002 would be big enough, or would I have to go with a 9005? There is quite a big price difference.

If I can go with the 9002, would it be beneficial to get the reefpack 200? My chamber dimension is 7 inches long x 5.5 inches wide. Would that be a problem size wise? It is kinda hard to tell how much that surface skimming tray sticks out. Is the reefpack 200 big enough to hold a bag of Chemipure?

Thanks for any advice.

The reefpack 200 will hold Chemipure and I would advice either the Reefpack or 9005, the 9005 would be preferred if the fish load and number of SPS will be high, for only a couple fish and one or two easy SPS like montiporas the Nanoreefpack should do fine.
