View Full Version : Skimmer for 30 Gallon

What skimmer would you guys recommend? This is a frag tank that could become a shallow reef tank. I don't run skimmers, so I have no idea what would be a good one.

Something small. If its a frag tank I'm assuming you will have a lite bio load

I have no clue about protein skimmers. I have never run one before. I am a rebel!

I posted in your sump thread about a skimmer.

I have a beat up coralife super skimmer I used on my 75 originally. Cup is cracked and missing a chip (hidden by lid). Pretty sure the pump still works. I pulled it out earlier when I was digging out my test kits for k's science project. I'll test it and let you know if it works. It will at least get you by for now if you seal the crack with pooper glue or silicone.

Yeah it still works. It's been modified to accept 1" PVC on the outlet. Pump has been modified to take air in before the impeller and I eliminated the flow limitation valve at the outlet of the pump. I'm letting it run now just for fun.
