I would just get it drilled, helps you sleep at night and doesnt cost as much.

I'm planning on drilling the tank. I practiced on a spare 2g I had. I don't like bakpaks. If I was going to get a HOB it would be a reef octopus. I have a sump, so I can have an in-sump skimmer.

Edit - Yes I have a RODI unit.

30g Bowfront help and conversion

Can anybody else recommend a protein skimmer? I want the price to be around 150.

I'm thinking about a tunze 9002.

I happen to like eshopps in sump skimmers. I have several. Great skimmer and not as costly as the reef octopus ones. ( i hated my reef octopus lol) Also has a small footprint which was what drew me to it the first time I did a sump.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Sorry to hijack, carey which one would you use on a 60g cube? I need it to fit in a 9" long, 12" wide area. Thanks

It is a good skimmer, just a little small for my heavy stocked 40gal! I'm in Alberta Canada so shipping might not be to expensive!

If we can keep the total cost under 90/100, I would be happy to take it
