    lsaint's SCA-301 Protein Skimmer

    So I am trying to find a new skimmer and in my skimmer part of my sump I only have 6"X by like 13" so I found a cadlights Gen3 PLS-100 Super space saving Pipeless protein Skimmer that will fit. anyone use this skimmer? reefbuilders had a good review on it.

    What size tank? I couldn't be any happier with the hydor slim skim. Not the nano version. I had it on my 40g and it skimmed like a champ. Took 1 day to fully break in.

    Not yet, I'm pretty convinced for the price. There is about 600 posts 95% positive feedback on this skimmer on Reef2Reef.
