Skimmer with minimal height above the tank

Postby gsrsk8er on Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:22 pm

I am looking to get some advice on a protein skimmer. I have a 50 gallon reef tank with a fluval canister filter. The problem I have is that I only have 8 inches of clearance above the tank. I am having trouble finding a skimmer that will fit under that space. I tried the reef octopus bh-1000 and that was way to big to fit. Let me know if anyone has any advice.

Thanks

Tunze makes a HOB skimmer with minimal height, but I'm not 100% sure if it'll handle 50g. I had a 9002 from Tunze a while back & was happy with it. Good luck!
