    depending on stocking level the bb2000 will be a great fit if really stocked the 3000 or cone would be betteresp if going with sps

    well its dependant on alot of things aslam,

    load fishwize?
    carbon dosing system - proposed to be a zeovit system...
    and overall tank capacity..

    my recomendation is a skimmer double the total system volume at least. that should give you a good safety net..
