Protein Skimmer - Only have 4 inches to wall
Sorry for another Skimmer post, but I am having troubles finding a good skimmer that will suit my special needs. I have a 46gallon aquarium and about 4 inches behind the tank. I would really like a protein skimmer that could sit inside the cabinet below the tank and have a pump that hangs into the tank. What do you think of the below choice? Is it overkill for my tank.. i.e. can you go too large? We may upgrade the tank later is why I state that.
Something like this one:
The Turboflotor 1000 Multi by AquaMedic(measures 7-1/2" x 15" x 21-1/4" high) includes a pump and all fittings, and can be used "hang-on" style, sit beside tank, or inside or outside the sump. Only the pump needs to be placed in the aquarium or sump. Two outflow boxes direct water back to the aquarium or sump, while eliminating any leftover bubbles. For aquariums up to 250 gallons.
If anyone has other suggestions also, I would love to hear them. We are planning to add Corals and a few fish.
