Custom Tank...

I am turning an old 7-up fridge into a salt tank. it has an odd shape. I would like to make a sump filtration system, but I need to find a skimmer that will fit into the 20.5L, 6.5D, 8H ridge under the tank or some sort of custom built system. does anyone have any suggestions.

Are you replacing the door with a clear panel or something?

How do you intend on lighting the tank of that height?

I dont think you will be very sucessful in finding a quality skimmer for that volume of water tha i only 8" high. The taller the reaction chamber the more efficent the skimmer would be and 8" is rather short for a skimmer reaction chamber.
