How much did the HOB Skimmer cost? And how effective is it?

Im running an instant ocean seaclone 100 or something like that. It can be either HOB or in sump. I like mine better in sump. Might have been because it hadn't worked itself out yet...but when it was HOB it made a huge mess of my tank.

It's 130$. I am happy with it but it makes a lot of microbubbles in the tank

The reason I am asking is bc my girl wants to turn her 54 corner bowfront and there is very little room. So I am trying to find a small sump , skimmer, pump. . . Having a lot of trouble

I made a ten gallon sump once, it was cramped so it wasnt very effective but It was helpful in some ways.

Yea. . . I am debating if it is worth turning salt.

They're pretty but freshwater is really cool too. Cichlids are really cool.
