hob skimmer and tank frame size?

so i have a 1" thick tank frame on my 100gal and thinking about getting a hob skimmer in the future.

considering remora aqua c or a coralife.

will either of these hang over a 1" thick frame?

my Rondamatic 400 feeder will not fit.

With a 100 gal. I would strongly recommend you to do a sump without any HOB equipment, but that is your choice.

Just my 0.02$

The Coralife super skimmer 125 fits moldings up to 1.3ā€¯ so that would work and it can either HOB or go in a sump.

Considering the size of the tank you may want to consider a higher volume sump skimmer like the AquaC EV series, ASM G3 skimmer, or Reef Devil Deluxe depending on planned bio-load.

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
