    Hello aquaria
    Ive been reading your post for the past few weeks, and in need of your help in making a choice.
    I am currently looking for a good skimmer, has anyone ever used the Aqua C urchin Pro.

    I have.. and i have heard mixed results from it.. Right now one of the better skimmers if you can afford them are the Euro-reefs.

    Dont know much about the ER , but also heard good things. One more from Aqua C, is The EV120 ? but getting expensive.

    i use the AquaC Remora Pro and have heard many good reviews on it. I only have it for 2 weeks and am still in the "breaking in" phase, but i am happy with it so far.

    The AquaC EV series skimmers are well rated and on a tank of your size (90 gal), I'd recommend going one model higher ...(EV180 or EV240)

    Cause we all know one day you're gonna get a bigger tank ... ... and that day'll come sooner than you think ... :thumb:

    Thread Highjacking :)

    On the same note... I'm also looking at purchasing a new skimmer... the one I have is well...... wrasse

    I was looking into the Berlin Turbo for insump setup.
    Perhaps I could get some YAY's or NAY's...or even other choices.
    I have a budget of about 400 bucks, and it'll be going into a 20 gallon sump for a 90 gallon tank.

    thanks,


    Mike

    I got my new Protein skimmer after quite the battle with the LFS and thier policies which they didn't want to honor. Things worked out in my favour after a few calls and I installed my new Berlin Turbo beside my sump this afternoon... still waiting for it to "break-in", but it looks like it can suck a golfball through a garden hose.

    How big is the Berlin Turbo base. did u need to use a bulkhead to install beside your sump, could be an option for me, instead of clutering my sump. also can the pump be replaced , does it have to be from berlin ( say maybe a mag)../.:smile3:
