help finding a small protein skimmer for nano reef

Postby prestonv44 on Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:24 am

hello everyone,

does anyone know of any protein skimmers for a small 15g tank? I don't have any corals in (yet), but i would like to spare myself the time and save the fish some stress if i could get a decent skimmer. Preferably under the $50 range. I found some on Amazon that have mixed reviews (links are below). If anyone knows anything about these skimmers or have any good suggestions, please let me know! :D

and if it helps, it is NOT a biocube. its simply a regular ol' glass tank. Not sure if that matters with buying one for sizing, strength, power, etc.

In my opinion because its only a 15gal tank I would skip the skimmer and just do small weekly water changes but if you are still considering a skimmer here are some suggestions for a good hang on the back skimmer.
AquaC Nano Remora Protein Skimmer,
AquaMaxx HOB-1 Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer w/ Bubble Stopper
Reef Octopus Classic 100 HOB Protein Skimmer
