I hated the biocube skimmer, it was garbage in my eyes.
I have the remora and I LOVE it. But its a tad big for a 10g tank.
I would pass on the skimmer and just do regular water changes. thats what I do with my under 20g tanks.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Smaller 5 stage Ro/di unit is same price point of a skimmer. Check Ebay.

It looks like the remora nano seems to be the best if not, the only good nano skimmer. All the others by design seem to produce a wet clear skimate. That's definitely a sign of inefficiency by design.
