I'm looking for a skimmer to go on my 30G custom tank, not stocked with corals... It's just going to have a lot of livestock as a growout tank for juvenile fish.

I'm looking at a few models... Tunze 9002, Reef Octopus BH models..

My favorite so far is the AquaMaxx HOB.. Wondering if anyone has any experiences and what they would recommend...

I definitely need something with NO micro bubbles and one that won't require a ton of adjustments.

Thanks in advance!

I've been extremely happy with the performance on the Bubble Magus NAC E5 hob skimmer. Produces at least a cm or more of dark skimmate a day or if wet I get 2" or more of dark tea-like skimmate a day. On my heavily stocked 2' cube (60g), I've been producing over half the collection cup a day of dark tea skimmate. If you send me you text number, I'll text you pics.

Run the same on my 30 with similar results. Got the new 'Rock pump' after the recall and it works a lot better than it did with the noisy PSK1000, can barely hear it.
