156G skimmer suggestion

I have a 13 year old Deltac 600, I think, skimmer. One pump is dead and the other keeps dying but I am able to revive it by taking it apart. I have not been able to find a replacement pump.

Don't want to see the day when the only pump is dead.

I am looking for new skimmer but I have no idea what the current models are.

Can someone recommend a skimmer for a 156G with a 40G sump (40G breeder) where my current skimmer sits in. Sump is behind and lower than the tank so height of skimmer should not be an issue.

Living on a pension so hope spend about $600 and not $6000.

Thanks in advance.

Call Jeff at Lifereef.
You'll spend less than $600 for a workhorse.
There is a thread here on RC devoted just to Lifereef.

If you use Aquabee 2000/1 pumps they can be replaced by Red Devil pumps.
