I had a HOB Aquafuge with protein skimmer on my 30. The skimmer was not near as good as a dedicated unit but I think it made up for that with the fuge. I added a cheato ball and light to it and my nitrates dropped from high to zero in a few weeks.

Just wondering because in the pic it looks different than mine. I have one and the pump is on the inside of the tank submersed.

I was just checking around and came across the Tunze 9004. The price seems reasonable and I've seen other people mention some of their other products with good things to say. Anybody heard of or have first hand knowledge of these?

No first hand knowledge but have heard good things. They make some quality products generally.
