I've spent several hours looking for a protein skimmer for my SW
tank. I've read around a lot and can't seem to find any definitive answer as to what is the best type or brand to get, and not many of them give dimensions, since I have a limited amount of space in my sump to put it in.
The sump has a constant water level of about 14", and the footprint needs to be 6" by 8" at the most. It looks like most skimmers that are rated for 180-gallon systems are bigger than this? I'd rather not do a hang-on-back skimmer if I don't have to.
Are there any good brands or types or anything I can use? I just haven't found anything that I know will actually work here...
