Hello guys,

I am looking to make an upgrade from the crappy skimmer that came with my JBJ 28 gallon nanocube. Does anyone have experience with hang-ons that fit, given the built in overflow compartments in the JBJ nanocube?
I have been looking at the Red Sea Prizm, but apparently it is very loud and has only gotten medium reviews amongst owners. Why I was considering it was because of how easily can fit on to any tank, especially since it is so thin. Then I read about Reef Octopus skimmers and thought I would look into the HB100. Had to scratch that since the pump needs to be in the tank as well, and wouldn't fit in the back compartments. Then I looked at the next size up, the 1000, but my LFS has it very overpriced and nowhere else in Canada sells it.

Thank you for any recommendations you might have.

Thank you for the response. I settled on a Tunze 9001 protein skimmer. InTank did a demo showing that it can fit inside the media compartment perfectly! Great brand for nano skimmers as well. Very excited.

Thanks for the suggestion! I am sure that it will. Right now I have the jbj skimmer running on it (came with my kit), but it is doing some sub-par skimming.

I personally would go skimmerless.

Saves money and is equally as effective. The cost/benefit just does not really make the skimmer as viable of an option below 40g.
