View Full Version : ATI powercone or ATB elegance?

05-05-2013, 01:20 AM

I am going to be buying my first skimmer and I am hoping I could get some opinions on the ATI PowerCone 250 as well as the ATB Elegance 200.
Anyone running either of these, or have tried them?
Came across the SKIMZ SM 161 Monzter E-Series it's more in my price range, any recommendations for this one?
Not sure if it's better to spend more money on skimmers or if they are over priced for the brand.
I will be running a 110g tank with a 45-55g sump.

Cant say I have any info on any of the skimmers you have listed.
Here at RF we have a skimmer Guru ( Skimmy) I am sure he will find your post. His knowledge on skimmers is highly valued here. IMO his recommendation should be highly considered.
Good luck, Let us know (with pics) which skimmer you get.

Thank you Peppie. I am hoping Skimmy does poke his nose in my thread.
I've noticed him chiming in on other threads with recommendations and like you said he really does seem like the Skimmer Guru.
I came across the SWC XTREME Cone skimmers last. Anyone have some info on them?
