    A skimmer rated for a 700l system will be fine. Your tank is about 328litres if I take 10mm glass thickness in account with a water height of 480mm. So you must also add your sump volume. If just the tank, then 600litres. If you have a biggish budget, then look at Vertex, JNS, Deltec, Tunze, etc. A smaller budget look at Reef Octopus or Reeftek. And no, they are not all the same. You get what you pay for ;)

    A reef octopus octx160 or 200 would work great on that size tank.

    Thanks guys, surely they are not the same as they surely differ in price. I think reef octopus will have to fit my budget for now.

    I have a tried and tested Reeftek TS 2 with new pump. R950 including postage. It would be perfect for that size tank.
