Protein Skimmer ??

I would like to add a protein skimmer to the first chamber of my refugium. The problem I am having is the space allowed is only 6". I would like to buy a octopus, but can't find one skinny enough . Any suggestion for a reputable skimmer I can fit in the refugium?

Did you mean a 20G sump?

A 6" side doesn't provide much room to get a sump in there. You best bet would be to get a HOB octopus skimmer to attach to the back of your sump.
