Hello - in the process of setting up a 40-gallon FOLWER. My LFS
has recommended the Coralife Super-Skimmer rated for up to 65 gallons. '
Does anyone have an opinion on this protein skimmer for my aquarium?
Secondly, if I do go with this particular protein skimmer, my hood (the glass panel on top with the lid opening) will no longer work as the skimmer will protrude into the tank to far for the glass to lay down properly. So I was thinking I could pick up a small sheet of plexiglass and use a jigsaw and notch out the areas for the skimmer, heater, etc. and fashion a hinged door along the front for access into the aquarium.
Any opinions or advice on whether using plexiglass to fix this problem would be good or bad?
