    options, options, oh sorry, there are none.

    Been to 2 of the LFS supporters on MASA, and the smallest skimmers is external Red Sea units at about R1400.

    What else can I look at, or actually where else can I find something that will fit.

    I want it internal. Tank is a Nano Cube 24G. Chamber in the back is about 80mm wide. But the gap with lid in place is just over 70mm.

    I can get a Aqua-Marco unit, but it is 80mm wide, so to get it in I need Vaseline.

    Seems that on Boyu tanks some members have WG05 skimmers. Are they available?

    Any suggestions please.

    Might sound a bit weird, but I would look at some of the lower class skimmer
    Something like Weipro SA-2011 or SA-2012.. Cheap....but would work in my opinion.

    Will let you know.

    I know I can get the NS16 for R335.
    Only other options was external and nothing under R1200.

    Just not 100% sure if it will go past the rim. Have to check tonight.

    Else I go for external Macro M30 for R388
    all-top
