I've spent a couple hours looking and can't find one that big with such a small footprint.

It's all about the pumps they use. If they are using sicce pumps, they should work well.

53cm high"

Nothing worthwhile will fit here.

I believe the skimmer to be more important than the algae. I would drain the sump and move the partition.

Ok I could do this but the height would still be the same and most skimmers that are rated 200gallons are just over my max height. Any short skimmer makes?

A quick Google search led me to Tunze skimmers. They seem to be quite small compared to others and will fit your current design. I have no experience with them however and have a hard time believing they will do what is said of them.
The Tunze Master DOC 9410 skimmer, and the Tunze Comline 9012 skimmers both will fit.
The ridiculously priced 9415 would be a better choice IMO.

The 9415 would be a dream skimmer but the price is too much. I would like to get one of the other tunze skimmers but they are a bit above my price range which is fine just need a while to get that money. Will my tank be ok without a skimmer for a couple of weeks? it only has a juvenile: foxface, bicolour blenny and maroon clown.

If you aren't feeding like crazy you should be ok. If you get one of the Tunze units, please review it for us.
