    Hello fishlore,

    I have built a 10 gallon sump for my 22 gallon aquarium. I used a 10 gallon aquarium for my sump build. I'm looking for a protein skimmer that will fit in my sump. The inlet water has a baffle at 6 inches and this is where I'd like the skimmer. My water level is 8 inches. Any ideas of a skimmer for this :)

    Thanks in advanced

    What's the available footprint for a skimmer? Including height.

    Is your tank SW or FW ? FW tanks don't usually have slimmers whereas SW tanks do.

    Good morning,

    I have moved the thread to the Protein Skimmer section of the forum. If this does turn out to be a freshwater aquarium, I'll move the thread again. Thread was originally in the Saltwater/Sump section of the forum.

    Thanks!

    Ken

    Total footprint of the skimmer will be needed like stated above, however to begin you might look at something like the Tunze 9001. The 9001 is the new version of the 9002 which has been discontinued however if you can find a remaining 9002 you might look at that as well.

    I have no idea what footprint means. It's a standard 10 gallon aquarium. I have a baffle at five inches.

    You mean skimmer. We need to know exactly how much space you have for the skimmer, LxWxH
