Sorry for the late reply. Had Internet connection issues at the new house. Can you quantify lots of fish? The mini 200 would certainly be suitable unless you had a really light load. As to why a Bubble King vs the other.. The Bubble King uses a much heavier and higher quality acrylic than the competition. The base & lid are made of PVC versus acrylic which is much more durable when it comes to parts that you’ll be handling more frequently. Then there is the pump. The Red Dragon pumps are arguably the best skimmer pumps ever made & make the others look and feel like a toy. And when it comes to performance, there’s no arguing that the Bubble Kings are among the best skimmers in their class.
