    Our second child has be arrived so I have approval to set up my new tank.

    I will be getting a 58 gallon oceanic tank from Durwin. Now I have to select the rest of my equipment. Currently I have looked at a few skimmers and interested in opinions on the following skimmer (or others in the same price range).

    -Octopus Extereme 160 (same as the ones at Green Marine)
    -Super Reef Octopus 1000
    -ASM G1x
    -Vertex IN100 or IN180
    -Others?

    Thanks
    Nick

    I've owned over five skimmers over the years. I'm really impressed with the bubble magus NAC6 on my elos 80 gallon.

    I was curious about bubble magus, but did not find a lot of information about them.

    RS-80 are just great little skimmers, I think a perfect match for a 58G
    SWX ? with Sicce pump seem to rock too but had no experience with them, only ATI but pump is the same.
