Hey guys, I've been running a Bubble Magus Curve 5 for a few years. It's by far the best skimmer that I have ever used and I've used a few over the last 30 years.

I need to step up to a larger skimmer. I'm thinking the BM Curve 9 Elite. It uses the Sicce pump with an upgraded adjustment...

So the question is. Is the Sicce pump worth the extra $$ ?

Also, I see that they have a newer model, the Curve+. What do you guys think of this one ?

i think the Sicce pumps are worth the cost. They are very reliable and efficient using very low wattage for the output.

This is what I was hoping to read. I've been running one for return for years. I just didn't know how it compared to the other pumps that BM uses on their other skimmer..

I really like these skimmers. My little base model Curve 5 is over worked and under paid. I might bump my whole system up to 200 gals. I think this is the right one for the job.

Thank you
