I need a Skimmer

Ok, i got a skimmer the other day from my Local but it was to big for the sump and I didn't want it in the tank itself, plus to the pump was 45wat@ only 1800ltrs...bit to hot for a small pump. So I sold it for the same price on ebay, luckily.


Anyway I want one that can sit beside my sump(external)
what would be good...Brand, Venturi, cost i can go to...about $200-250 or cheaper.
to suit the tank listed below.

Rob.

Saltwater 4foot (67gal) and Reef Rock/Plugs (300)Sump (12gal) with a 3000ltr/hr return pump(32watts)
1x 6025, 3 x TUNZE 6045 for flow.
Aquasonic Skimmer with 3000ltr pump
16watt UV. *5 Lights: 2 Actinics and 2 Daylights and 1 Gro-Lux.
*Fish @ the moment: Powder Blue Tang, South Seas Devil, Mandarinfish, Lemon Peel, Bi-colour angel, Coral beauty, Scopas Tang(4in), Coral Banded Shrimp(been in tank for 4/5yrs) and a Dusky Anemonefish(3in).. and 2 Red Base Sand Anemones..A pair peppermint shrimps.

You would have to mod one to do that. Because all dump the water right next to it.

OK I understand what you mean now. I misunderstood, I thought you didnt want tit to hang or be in the tank.For a good hang on the tank go with the coralife super skimmer they are the best when it comes to hang on the back skimmers.
