Hey, we just got our Nano-used from Zach--and I was just wondering if anyone knows what skimmer to use..I have heard that some people think they are crap--and just to do water exchanges, but I really think we want a skimmer..so what are you ideas? Thanks a bunch.

Under 30 gallons most of them don't do much...just do a weekly water change...I think about the only one that is worth much is the Tunze if you are dead set on getting one...but honestly I have 3 x 24g nano's in my house and none of them have skimmer, and the Cardiff came with one but after fiddling with it I pulled it out.

Sorry, 24 gallon
is it an all in one like a biocube or JBJ unit?
If so then I have heard good things on the Tunze units, but personally I would go with water changes - those skimmers are so small and the collection cups are so small you will need to change it out every day ;)

If you have a sump then skimmer choices become much more vast.

Do you have one?

It is an all inclusive nanocube. I wanted to go without a sump for looks since I have the S shaped stand that goes with it. I have a sump on my 125 and my 120, but I am putting the nano in the dining room with some nice shelving around it.
