    So I want to upgrade the skimmer on my RSM130
    Only one that apparently fits is the TUNZE 9002

    They don't make them anymore and
    I don't wanna put a hang or a sump not an option for me

    Anyone have a 9002 or know of places that sell them

    Of what else can fit in the back of RSM 130

    Have not read much about the hydor and RSM combination

    Will look into it

    Lots of success stories with 9002

    I had the Hydor slimskim for my 120l nano, it worked very well, makes lots of foam, as you can see here :p It overflowed as I hadn't set the level correctly.

    Are you sure you looked at the size of the Hydor Slimskim Nano (they have 2 sizes) - I have one and it's pretty small. Haven't set it up yet so can't vouch for performance(bought for a second nano I'm planning). have a RSM 130d with standard skimmer and skims perfectly fine - did they change the skimmer between the 2 models?

    They got 2 models (hydor)

    The one which is rated for 200lt is bigger and won't fit in my tank
    The other is rated much less and wont work for RSM
