Currently I'm running a swc 150 bmk skimmer on my 200 gallon tank. It does a pretty good job and I love how solid the skimmer is. I do feel its a good idea to upgrade because its only rated up to 150. I can get a decent deal on a bubble magus curve 9. Would this be a good upgrade or not so much? It is rated up to 400 gallons but I think 200 is more realistic.
I have mostly Lps and softies. No sps at all. I have a very small sump so I like the pump inside the skimmer cause I don't have much room. Anyways. All input is appreciated.

I run a curve 9 pumps a bit noisy and it likes to puke once in awhile but skims decent you have to be careful using two part epoxy to set frags it sets it off.. Calms down after two days. If you have more questions pm me.
