Protein Skimmers Slim Skim Nano
Just got this today and the first thing I noticed was how big it looked out of the box, but it looks good in the corner of my 17 gallon tank. This skimmer is whisper quiet and makes great microbubbles with no seepage into the tank. The grill areas on the front and bottom are small enough to make sure no fish can get in. Nicely designed product

Buy this !
Got the slim-nano hooked up 4 days ago and it has been skimming great ever since. Had skimmate in collection cup just a few hours after I hooked it up ! I researched many brands before deciding and glad I went with this model. Directions are mainly just pictures, but easy to follow. Very high quality and durable. Fit easily in corner of my 25 gal. nano and is hardly noticeable. Customer service was a great help in making my decision. You WON'T be disappointed with this skimmer, I promise !!

All of my previous reef setups were large (100 gallons or more), with huge sumps and tons of equipment.
My current reef is a Clear For Life 35 gallon hex with built-in overflow. I use the center overflow chamber for a mini refugium by adding some live rock to the bottom, along with some macro algae.
I added the Hydor Skimmer to the center chamber. It was a tight fit, but it sets up in there very nicely. I didn't know what to expect, but I have to say the unit started skimming day one and my water quality is visibly improved.
I also noticed that since I added the Hydor Skimmer, the display area (especially the live rock) is all looking much better.
The size of the skimmer would lead you to think that it can't be effective, but when you understand that it is intended for smaller tanks, it really does a great job.

Love this skimmer
Got the NANO version to replace a skimmer i had which was spitting bubbles all over my sump compartment and rotting the wood/ making micro bubbles. No bubble spitting from this one and it is MUCH quieter than my previous skimmer. I empty the skimmage about once a week but i can honestly wait at least two weeks before its close to full. It gets me nice dark skimmage when i have the cup elevated ABOVE the water line as per the instructions.
