resun-sedra-gen-x all 3 the same pump but sedra has a different volute then the factory vertex skimmer pump has, never got around to testing which volute did better, it is basically a sedra 5000 on the in180. btw i owned this skimmer twice, but was just too much for my tank lol wished it wasnt why i owned it twice, and never had a pump problem or noise issue's

I like the build of the vertex 180 bit am hassent to buy it due to the pump n then there's the octopus 2000 which is small bec the 6in diam but I dono if it's better down sizing to oct or just taking a chance with vertex

i had no issue's with my in180 gen 3. or either i owned, if you look through the vertex skimmer thread you will find the issue's have been with all the other models not the in180
