    Anyone out there can help with a skimmer option for this that works - will consider a WG-308 if anyone has one.. I Do not want to modify, looking for plug and play option. Want to set up a ponies tank as a christmas pressie, so kind of urgent. Shhhhhhh

    I ordered a Boyu WG-308 from overseas, was about 28 USD including shipping. Took about 5 weeks to get here though :(

    @Jt143, Hi did some research, will not fit standard and needs to modding, so not sure I want to go that route. However please let me know what price and condition. Shamy

    @aquatic, interested, will do some checking on the model this evening. Please dibs for now,

    @Jt143, thanks for the offer a bit too rich for a TL450, would consider if i was doing a cube. Thank you for the offer.
