    Best 30g long FOWLR / reef tank skimmer

    So I'm building my own sump and I was wondering what all you guys think is the best skimmer on a budget? Like a highscholer budget

    Depending on the footprint you have to work with. I just bought a nano AquaC Remora for my biocube and it pulls out a bunch of stuff.

    What's it's footprint? Would it fit in a 8x11? That's what I'm planning for my sump

    There's lots of hang on back skimmers for low space applications. Reef octopus and aqua c both make fairly good hob skimmers

    Does 8x12 seem like a general footprint for some skimmers?
