I did a 20g tall with my 72g when I had it. The footprint is smaller and could fit in the 72g stand. The 20g long prolly won't fit, so I hope you're not using the 72g stand.

Welcome aboard. For a twenty gallon tank I would not have a skimmer. PWC`s will accomplish the same thing.

Partial water change. You'll still need a skimmer. I think melosu just thought your tank was a 20g (which wouldn't need a skimmer). Also you'll still need to do pwcs lol. I'm not good with skimmers so hopefully someone else can recommend one (although I hear the reef octopus brand is good).

I think the name is seaclone 100 or 150. I had the 100 on a 92 reef in the sump and only ran it daytime due to noise (aquarium was in bedroom). Anyway it did a fine job. Good luck and welcome to AA.
