Biocube 29 Protein Skimmer

For those with this tank, should I go with the Hydor Slim Skim Nano or the Tunze 9002?

Don't waste your money. You absolutely do not need a skimmer on your bio cube 29. Keep up with your weekly water changes and you'll be fine. A total waste of IMO.

To answer your question in case you go ahead and throw your money away, stay away from the Tunze9002. The water level fluctuates too much in chamber 2 to keep it running smoothly, you will be re tuning and re tuning forever. If your hell bent on a skimmer go with this one.

AquaticLife 115 Skimmer


However if its the coralife model this skimmer will not work with that model. I have nothing to offer up on the skimmer you have mentioned.

My statement still stands, no skimmer needed. Save your money and hair.

+1 to that. Pwc are the best way to go in a tank that size.

Pretty much echoed my words. So there ya go OP 2 posts saying a skimmer is like throwing your money out your window.
