This skimmer will work great on a medium bio load 150 as the recirculating design will help to increase performance.
I think this would be a great skimmer for that tank as we recommend it for systems up to 200 gallons. The DC skimmers provide a great level of control which means you can speed the pump up or down to get the best performance out of the skimmer for your system.
Just remember that you will need an additional pump to feed the skimmer water from your sump. I would recommend the Sicce Syncra 2.0 or 3.0 but any pump capable of moving 300-600 GPH will work. I would go with the 3.0 if you need to move water vertically or farther than a few feet from the sump to make sure you can come close to hitting that 600 GPH mark.
Hope this help! Have a great day :)
