I received the innovative marine nuvo 10 tank package as a gift. This comes with the nuvo 10 tank, media basket, and ghost protein skimmer. I purchased the a80 gooseneck. With the protein skimmer in back the gooseneck doesn’t fit because of the hard plastic piece. In the picture you can see the hard plastic piece. I could remove the piece and just have the metal against the glass. I’m not sure if this is the best idea. Or I could make a smaller plastic piece to rest against the glass. Wasn’t sure if anybody has been through this before. Thanks for any help.

I would think that you could use a piece of Styrofoam instead. I have the same light and I just have mine on cheap 10-gallon aquarium.

The only issue I see with styrofoam is the flaky nature of the stuff. I sure wouldn't want bits of it in my tank and it will break down in saltwater. @ the OP is the tank rimmed or rimless? I had a similar issue with my AI Hydras on my rimmed 90 gallon and ended up having to go with a rail mount as it was the only way it felt stable without compromising the structural integrity of the tank.

Oops. I totally did not see this was in saltwater.

For a rail mount, did you connect it directly to the wall or to the tank?

It is a rimless tank. I found some hard plastic washers that are half the thickness of the original block. I believe this will work. If not I will definitely be checking out a rail mount system.

The tank. It just sits on the sides, but is surprisingly stable/sturdy.
