    @Ridwaan...those are bigger than what I'm looking for..I actually got my hands on a 3000sss but reckon it could be overkill on 1.2m so looking for a good smaller skimmer

    rather overkill than underkill. Using a XP5000 cone on a 800 litre system and it is 3x time the required amount. also you might want to upgrade and it allows for you to overfeed and keep a couple more fish.

    @SApicoreef. ..I know Wat you mean but if skimmer is way over sized some believe that certain elements get skimmed out of water...check on zeolite forums...They tend to avoid certain type skimmers as well..im thinking that the xp2000 should be perfect for my 360litre sps system

    worried bout certain elements being skimmed out of tank...my potassium levels always drop like crazy..reckon its due to the current skimmer being so good with enkamat mod.

    IMHO turing a skimmer on and off is not recommended. We know how difficult it its to tune a skimmer to perfection. The slime inside the reaction chamber aids in not bursting the fine bubbles this is crucial for optimum performance. Turning on and off won't achieve this.

    A proper skim head takes time to build
