    I'm sitting with two skimmers at the moment, a Reeftek TS1 and a Bubble Magus NAC3.

    My sump cracked a while back and my skimmer chamber ran dry, I couldn't get the pump on my NAC3 to start so I rushed out and bought a TS1 to make sure I had a working skimmer.

    I have subsequently managed to get my NAC3 working and from what I can see it seems to perform the same if not slightly better than my TS1.

    My total water volume is around 240L and I have recently started running bio pellets. looking for some advice on whether I should use both skimmers in the sump or just one and sell the other one?

    Keep the ts1 as backup. apparently spares for bubble magus not too easy to come by
