best skimmer to buy?

Hi all, I've got a aqua reef 400 and I'm wanting to upgrade the skimmer any idea what the best skimmer I could get for this size tank, bearing in mind the Sumps on there's are rather small, if anyone has a aquareef what skimmers do you use.

Cheers guys l

measure the size of the sump. The new Vertex Omega 130 is rated just under 400l, but, as I did some of the practical tests, I know it can handle more. Footprint is about 18cm x26cm. Might be the solution. We do have the Omega-150, as well.

Have a look at the bubble magus curve 7 or nac7.. both would be good for that size tank and fairly small footprint too.

I can recommend the vertex omega 150 great well built unit which works brilliantly. imagine the 130 is just as good

I'm using a deltec sc1350 on my aquareef 300, it has the same sump as the 400.
