What skimmer are you using on your 125 gallon reef tank with a sump? Do you think it is right for your tank? Do you not like it and think you need to upgrade? I use an Excaliber in sump and it skims like crazy with an inch of stinky skum a day.

I researched a lot and (bang for the buck) what I came up with was the Octopus Extreme 200 form my 125g with sump.

I could not be happier with it. I bought from ReefSpeciality.com. Very good place to shop and extremely helpful!

Almost forgot ... they also set me up with the purple pin wheel.

I'm running an ETSS 800 on my 125. Works great.

Thanks so much for the replies. That's 3 tanks running different skimmers that each of you like. I'm looking at the Octopus 200 or IN 180. Got to stay below $300.00 new, $200.00 used.
