    It's just a plain glass tank, 60x40x30.

    Do you have a pic of the tank?

    But for a small tank like that Boyu WG-310 skimmer works well. My brother got his from Lanzo.

    To be honest, your best option is the Tunze 9002 nano skimmer. Not only does it look good, it works very well.

    AquaC is a nice little skimmer but is fairly powerhungry and you'll end up with an ugly pump sitting inside your tank. As for the Buyo, well...


    Much like all equipment in this hobby, you get what you pay for.
