    Hey,

    I know with a small tank like mine (20G) that a skimmer is not required but I would like to have one. I do not have a sump so it would have to be a HoB unit. Does anyone know of a good one or have one that they have had good results with? I have a found a few with Google but want some opinions from the community.



    Thanks!
    Shep

    I had the Reef Octopus BH2000 on my 29. It did a great job. However, we converted that tank to a freshwater and the skimmer sat unused for 6 months. I am just firing it back up t use on a different tank and am having pump issues. I think there is some cleaning I need to do to the pump.

    Haha thanks but I think 75G is a little bit over kill for my tank!

    I like Reef Octopus but was thinking about this one http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/reef-octopus-ns80-nano-skimmer.html Is a pinwheel a good thing or a bad thing to have? Also has anyone heard about http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/auqa-gadget-skimmate-protein-skimmer-desktop-innovative-marine.html

    You may want to consider a Remora aqua C nano skimmer, nice compact unit and they work well.

    Tunze 9002 and Hydor Slim Skim are great skimmers to check out too.
