Hoods With Built-In Filter

Are hoods with a built-in filter, such as the Eclipse, good for only small freshwater aquariums? Can a hang-on back protein skimmer be added to an aquarium with this type of hood?

a small 5gal tank would be way to small for a hob skimmer (they are pretty large)
30gal / 2: maxijet 600s / 150w heater / CPR Bak Pak2 (maxijet 1200)/FOWLR

30lbs base rock
6lbs Brazilian LR
35lbs sand (20lbs of lfs ls i think it cycled my tank faster)
