    Also maybe an stupid Question if your volume is an 1000l for example could you add 2 say 500l (rated for 500l ) ?
    do you determine the skimmer on your DT volume only or on your total volume including the filtration?

    Yoh want a skimmer rated for twice your tanks volume. So if you have a 1000l tank you should get a 2000l rated skimmer

    Ok so if your DT is 500l I need to get an skimmer rated for 1000L?
    or if your total volume DT & Filtration = 1000L I need an Skimmer rated for 2000L?

    Would it have any benifit to have 2 Skimmers?

    Twice the total volume so sump as well. But it doesn't have to be exact it can be slightly less. Also depends on how heavily you stock your tank

    Rather get yourself a bigger skimmer than 2 * TS2 skimmers. Can always sell the one you got to partly sponsor the new skimmer. Or use the TS2 on the important Quarantine tank you one day will set up.
