Thoughts on skimmers for a 90 gallon with a 30 gallon sump. Looking for ease of use and affordability. Pros and con's of a cone skimmer (reef octopus) vs a box skimmer (aquac style) Too many choices!!!

If this fits into your budget I would think its tough to beat for the price.

Vertex omega 130 is still in stock at BRS and is at 40% off (150 ran out of stock). Might wanna have a look at it. Shipping is around $32 I believe.

Interesting little fact this evening......

Apparently even though that this skimmer is "SOLD Out"....you can now place it in your basket. There MAY be hope for you guys. Slim....but possible.

Perhaps this is a computer error. Perhaps there is stock. If interested I suggest you try. WORST case scenario....they cancel your order. No harm. No foul.

It's currently the ONLY "Sold Out" item you can place in your cart/shopping bag.........

Good Luck! Cheers.

I have an SWC `160 Cone on my 90 Gallon and have not had one problem in almost 3 years. Pulls nasty sludge out ...

.....I managed to purchase one for a friend of mine and we had hoped that the transaction would not be cancelled (due to error or other form of technical issue). I just received UPS shipping confirmation as did some of the other people that ordered. Good luck everyone!
