    Hello im going to have a 65 gallon tank soon and i was wondering if i needed a sump? Can i just get a hang on back filter? I dont know much about sumps. If i do get a hang on back filter can i get a protein skimmer down the road? If so where would i put the skimmer? Thank you for your time :)[​IMG]

    Not a salty but they do make hob skimmers and hob filter is possible on salt.Imo salt tanks stay much cleaner with a sump ntm you can keep all your equipment underneath with plenty of room for skimmer, heaters, refuges, etc...
    But my sumps on a freshwater tank.
