i can not say i have tried a lot of skimmers but i have been running the 65 for a few months and i love it.. it pulls a ton of junk out (price does not hurt either LOL)

a rock would create an un-even surface.. maybe build a basic plexi-glass box as a riser or using something food/tank safe to get it up higher.
