    Whats the total system volume, and the other skimmers rating. Also what are you looking at stocking, fish wise?

    Could be a bit under rated but you could always add another skimmer in the future, but for now it will be fine just keep the neck of your skimmer clean

    Hi Hermanus,

    The TS1 will be struggling a bit ( I had more or less the same size tank with a TS1)...made a huge difference when I moved over to TS2.

    Also doing the pinwheel conversion will help on the TS1, could also do the mesh mod to improve the performance
