I like the coralife super skimmers. Im not using one rt now but have had good success with it. I would
steer way clear of any skimmer/filter combo( sometimes called a skilter) or the seaclone skimmers.

You mean in the back of the tank in the compartments? There arent very many skimmers that are good but this one might fit, it also might be a bit on the small side though.

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

Hey Dave I would go with a hangon back skimmer. Because like me you are limited in space. Try Craigslist. I payed a 4th of retail by going that route

I use purigen, chemipure and filter pads in the back of my biocube.

The skimmer should be in either the input compartment or the middle one. I'm not familiar with the setup you have so I'm not 100% sure how it all works.

Update I stared my tank, I added 40lb of live sand 35lb of live rock and it's coming out good. I added some pads biomax I don't know if I should add the chemi- pure yet. I also added like 3 cups of live sand in the refugium and one peace of live rock. No skimmer yet prob next week.
