Hang on back appliances???

I dont even know if there is such a thing as a hob sump or protien skimmer but heres my question is if these exist which would be the best to help clean my 110g tank along with my 100-125g filter,a hob sump,hob protein skimmer,or an hob refugium---ps--- i will get a stingray which are sloppy eaters and i hear protein skimmers are important for them.

I would say you'll need a sump with all that size. I have a hang on skimmer now but I only have a 55g. If you got a sump you could have all those things and they would be hidden underneath the tank.

I know you can get a hob skimmer, and refugium. Not sure if the skimmer would be rated for that size tank though. octopus skimmers come in a hob style and might accomodate your tank size.

stingray in a 110G? Not a good idea, much too small for a ray. They need a very large system with a large footprint for swimming room
