A 29 is supposed to be 30 1/4 x 12 1/2 x 18 3/4, so what skimmer are you using?

I think that's a little undersized for your system. 1.5 to 2 times your total system volume is what I would recommend.
How about this guy?

Just make sure you can fit it. You are going to need the inside diameter of that 29. I would think it's a tiny bit smaller than 12".

I'll probably end up buying a pre built skimmer, and use my empty 29G as a QT.
