oxx155 Posted November 9, 2010 Share Posted November 9, 2010 I have never been real happy with my Reeflo Orca 250 Pro and ASM G-6 working together. I am sure someone could get better use of them, but I really need something better sized to fit my system. So, what does everyone recommend for a 900 gallon system with about $3,000 available for budget. I am leaning toward the ATB Deluxe 18 Internal. I have heard great things about Bubble King also but just don't think the price tag matches the performance and that I could get something almost as good or just as good at $1,000's less. I could get an ATB Deluxe 18 Internal with Self Cleaning Head for $4,000, but would have to spend over $5,000 for a Bubble King Deluxe 500 standard (and possibly wait 4-8 weeks). I have also heard of Becketts and many other types of skimmers (standard, cone, beckett, external, internal, hang-on, etc.). Since I have had both Internal and External I tend to lean right now towards Internal so that I don't have to have an extra pump to provide water, and I have done the overflow to Skimmer thing and it just doesn't work for me. Anyway, I would love any and all advice or thoughts. And yes, I will probably be selling my Reeflo Orca 250 Pro (extended neck, large collection cup, new Dart Gold Needle Wheel Pump) and ASM G6 with 3 Sedra 9000's recirculating and Gate Mod. I am thinking about a New Year Garage Sale, and those that know me know that I don't sell junk and I usually sell cheap because I am not in it to make a profit, just changing to new stuff (hopefully the wife doesn't notice, LOL).
