Hi Brian,

What is this very expensive skimmer? You might want to do some research on the Seaclone, because it does not seem to be well liked by many of its users. You do need a good, over-spec skimmer.

We recommend at least a 180 for a S. officinalis. It's large as an adult, and 4 feet doesn't give it much room to swim.
