Nano skimmer

Was wondering if a rio nano skimmer would be good for a 30 gallon seahorse only tank?

Meh.... Rio nano is only rated up to 20 gallons, and doesn't get the greatest reviews. If you're looking for a decent HOB skimmer, you're probably better off with somthing like the CPR bakpak.

Well I guess I will give it a shot and see what happens and I was wrong with the tank size it is 20 gallons and if the rio nano skimmer doesn't work then I'll buy a better skimmer and a better filter

You can find them on marinedepot.com and mrsaltwater used it on his "sexy tank" and reviewed it.
