I have as much head room as i want as ill be building a new stand for the tank soon. Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance.
I can offer you a ton of suggestions, but it is important to first know what your goals for the tank are. What livestock are you keeping? This is important, because when you say you want the skimmer to "work", we have to define how effective the skimmer needs to be for your intentions.
I can recommend skimmers ranging from $100 to $800. The needs of the tank will determine the cost. So, what are you looking to do?
