Well it seems my clueless self has gone and gotten a protein skimmer not appropriate for my 29 gallon tank. It's not a name brand, just a cheapo plastic one with a 530gph pump. The problem lies in that it's internal so it would take up half my tank. Look at the size of that thing LOL
I now realize I have to spend the money. I was looking at remora's with the 1200 maxi jet. It's a hang on and has a small footprint. I don't mind that it would be taller than the tank by a few inches either.
I also looked at the octupus ones but they seem incredibly big for my small setup.
Good question is what do I do with the skimmer now? Think I can find a taker on CL
Thanks for any input. I will be keeping mostly corals and not fish if that matters.
