    Hi.
    I recently set up a 110l nano and have some soft corals, two clowns and a 6-line wrasse. Currently using a Dophin SP 2012 HOB skimmer and want advice on whether this is sufficient for my system. My sump is currently only 30l and consist of mechanical filtration and live rock. Will do DSB later.
    My concern is that the Dophin skimmer does not give a rating for tank volume, only specifies flow which is 500l/h. Seems to be skimming ok.
    Should I shop for another skimmer?
    Where should I shop as few shops in CPT seems to be keeping a nice variety of stock?
    What do you propose for a 110l nano?
    I am not restricted by height as the sump stands next to the display tank.
    If I need to upgrade, will be looking for a footprint of no larger than 150x150mm.
    Many thanks!
