    Hello Reef Freaks,

    What skimmer would you guys suggest for a 1,500 liter system (total volume)?

    A Reef Octopus Internal Cone 5000 has been suggested, but damn, they're pricey.

    WOW! Now HERE's a GHOST FROM THE PAST! Galibore! Welcome back mate!

    And you are STARTING OFF with a BANG! 1500 Liters! WOW!

    I would agree with the RO Bubble Blaster range or even Reef Octopus OCTX Extreme series of skimmers.....
