    Default skimmer similar to coralife superskimmer 65

    i am looking if anyone has any info on a skimmer similar to the superskimmer 65 from coralife. mine just recently broke and before i get another i was wondering if anyone has had a similar sized skimmer. my issue is i am limited in height and the internal pump size for the skimmer and it has to hang on like the coralife will as well.

    i am not looking into any of the remoras or a prizm i want a round body skimmer.

    also, the pump is the main thing that broke on the superskimmer 65, has anyone ever tried to use a maxijet1200 for the pump for it as a replacement?

    If I recall correct (its been a long time) you need a smaller pump than a maxi 1200, but can be replaced.

    I ran a Rio 1900 with a needle wheel impeller works great.

    i ended up buying a eshopps psk-75 off ebay from the premium aquatics store for $98 shipped for the in sump model. my in sump footprint i have to work with is 9.5x6 and its footprint is 9x4 so i should be good and have enough room for my drain line, the skimmer, heater (winter only) and my temp probe and PH probe all in that chamber so hopefully it works out good! ive wanted an in sump for a while i finally figured out this one would fit. will make it nice if it ever decides to overflow on me i wont have a mess all over the carpet/stand.
