    Hi. I am a beginner with marine. I currently have a Juwel rio 240. But was told that the larger the tank the more stable it is. I am interested in buying a 1500L tank but it does not have a skimmer. What skimmer can I use for it?

    Usually look at going bigger than required. Also depends on how much you want to stock (fish have a bigger impact than corals). Rather look at a skimmer rated for a 2500L system. Brand wise rather research a bit. Just remember that there is brands that have proven them selves over and over that are being used by most reefers then there are brands (which are mostly cheaper) that just don't compare. Also browse the For Sale section because there are some good skimmers up for grabs at a reduced price to a new one.
