I'm not sure I can answer that exactly. The mg/hr is really more a question on the output of the generator. Vertex skimmers are compatible with ozone. The amount you would need/use will depend on your aquarium system and what is required to achieve the concentration or ORP readings you are targeting. Each system is a little different, so there isn't really a one-size fits all answer to that.

sorry let me explain. I had a deltec skimmer in the past and the pumps were rated at a specific consumption. I believe it was 50mg/hr per pump. I was wondering what rating is on the omega 180i pump. Maybe it has no limit but i wanted to ask.

I guess I don't really have that kind of specific information, but that seems like an odd way of rating a skimmer. The pump is just churning air and water and doesn't really "consume" any ozone. I would check with Vertex though, as they may be able to provide that info about their pumps.
