How close to the wall is the tank? My Remora C does not take any room at all. If it is that close what about on the side. I originally had a cheap Visi-JET PS 100 that I attached on the side of the tank. Hope this helps.

You can get an external recirculating skimmer which can be put on a shelf even with or slightly above the top of the tank. If you don't have a sump, you can't run a skimmer below the tank.

As Judge mentioned, if you already have a hang on back skimmer, hang it on the side if there is no room in back.

This Octopus DNW110 would work nice.
