I'm currently in the process of building a 150g 48x30x24 that will have about 100lbs of LR and be stocked with mostly SPS. The sump will be a total of about 60gallons with a fuge.
Which would be the best vertex skimmer for my build? Any input greatly appreciated.


Current Tank Info: 90 shallow reef

Royal Exclusiv does not make any of the Vertex skimmers anymore. We make Bubble King skimmers. Based on your planned tank & the info you have provided, if you meant Bubble King & not Vertex, I would suggest a Bubble King Double Cone 180. It's far superior in every respect to anything in the Vertex lineup IMO & the RD3 pump on the Double Cone 180 is arguably one the best skimmer pumps on the market.

I have the same dimensions as you and about as much live rock on a heavily stocked tank and I run the Double Cone 200 without a hitch! It has run smoothly on my tank for the last two years. Best investment ever! I know it's a little oversized, but it has done great on my heavy bioload.
