At Reef2Land we will no longer be carrying Skimz Sumps. But, great things are coming. We are now the exclusive retailer for Leviathan Sumps. They're built right here in the USA, made of quality 1/4" cell cast acrylic, and we are working on a new line which features a built in ATO reservoir which is due out September 25th. All of this with a very moderate price. Check them out by clicking HERE.
Skimz sumps/refugiums are rather new to the aquarium industry, yet they are constructed with the same focus to detail and reliability that Skimz has been emphasizing since early 2000. In the beginning, as remains the same today, their primary focus has remained on product research and development, with an emphasis on bringing the best possible equipment to both professionals and hobbyists. You can see this emphasis built into every Skimz Sumpro Sump.
The best rule for selecting a Refugium/Sump is simply the biggest you can fit in the area you have to work with. One reason is because it will give you room to grow and expand the amount of filtration you have for your tank. This is in case someone decides to add such things as Calcium Reactors, Media Reactors, Protein Skimmers, UV Sterilizers, etc. The second reason is in case you decide on natural filtration, such as macro algae. A larger sump will give you a greater amount of space to fit more media. If you have any other questions please refer to our Reef101 Section or Contact Us.
