View Full Version : best compact skimmer?

01/07/2008, 07:39 PM

I am currently using an ati bm 200 for my 130 gal setup with 30 gal sump. I am happy with the performance, but the skimmer is located next to my filter sock and its a real pain to change. I also have the skimmer sitting up about 7" in the sump to maximize performance.

I was wondering which skimmer you guys thought would have similar or better performance with a smaller footprint, and maybe even need not be raised in the sump.

I have been looking at the BK mini 180, is this a good one? Any other new skimmers out there I should know about?

Anyone know of any compact options?
