    I dont think that skimmer will do the job. Rather invest in a TS2 or equivalent skimmer

    If you are in the southern suburbs you can try Sams. They are sponsors here.

    Cannot help with second hand skimmer. Sorry yours is leaking. Very often simple O rings are needed. Very cheap. With regards cooling many use pc fans which are very energy efficient and run forever. The other option is a simple desk fan or even better and the option i prefer are the extractor fans designed for bathrooms. They are designed to work under humid conditions are quiet and cheap. They do need mounting and wiring however which is fairly simple.

    Big time no, clown triggers are psychotic killers, they also get huge, if you look at a trigger, if it's mouth is right at the end on the point it isn't reef safe, if it's mouth is under the end of the point, it might be reef safe, but not many are hand safe;)
