which double cone?

Hi.

I will go for a 68 gal tank (48"x18"x18"), i think real volume about 54 gal with 13-14 gal sump, and i'm having time settling on a skimmer.

I'm going to stock mainly gobies (trimma, eviota, stonogobiops and etc) ~ 20-25 pieces
couple ocellaris, 3-5 chromis.
corals will prominently sps, maybe claims.

I've been looking at:
double cone 130
double cone 150
or maybe 180?
Thanks.

I'd go with the Double Cone 150. The 180 will be too large for your display size and the 130 could end up being too sensitive for your load.

What do you mean by 130 being too sensitive with low bioload? Why would a 150 be more stable?

What I mean is that the 130 will require more tuning to get it dialed in and changes to the load will likely require more adjustments to the intake nozzle. I think the 150 would be easier to tune.
