Maybe the Hydor Slim Skim. Heard good reviews about it and it isn't pricey at all. DFS has them on sale I believe.

Aquatic Life Internal Mini Protein Skimmer 115

Pain in the butt in the first chamber but will fit. Reason it's there is that the water level is at the right level.

What I really want to know is what do other biocube people use? Would they recommend what they have? Performance of said skimmers and etc.

I've heard the aquaticlife will fit in the biocube and that's what I use in my 20. It's a pain to get adjusted but once you find that sweet spot it works great and is only 60 bucks

I saw that skimmer on Amazon, the price makes it worth a shot over the hydor and the tunze.. I have a coralife so I'm used to finicky skimmers.. lol
