i am considering attempting my hand at salt water and while i know that larger is better i simply dont have the ability to go large right now so i am considering a nano (10 gal or maybe a 20 gal not sure yet) but either way i know i need a skimmer. i have looked at HOB type skimmers and am interested in if any one has any plans on how to make one out of a HOB filter or any DIY skimmer i am just looking at this point so nothing is for sure just kind of researching and seeing whats around you know?
Oh exciting! i just started, go check out my build in the saltwater pictures section, teddys 10gal nano build, is what its called. i would definatly not try and make a skimmer yourself, they seem way to complicated lol. the remora nano skimmer is good. DONT GET A TAAM Rio Nano Skimmer. mine didnt even work and it look like it just plain old sucks, the spacing isnt correct. anyways, go check out my build and maybe youll get some ideas! there is a lot of DIY in saltwater, its just expensive.
