    So you have a hang on skimmer? What make? Some guys use canister filters, they put carbon and phosphate remover in there. The other downside is your heater will be visible in the tank. Maybe look at overflow boxes if you want a sump and scared to drill, Reeftek makes 'em.

    Here is a link to our sponsors forum, have a look through and see which sponsor is closest to you. Then you can enquire with them, they should be able to help with prices and availability.
    If I can give you some advise, get rid of that jebo skimmer and ask the sponsors for a price on a Reeftek or Reef Octopus hang-on skimmer - much better ;)
