does anyone know of a skimmer i could use with my fluval spec v? the biocube one i got was too bulky. id like to put it in my 1g hob breeder/fuge if i could find one small enough. i cant seem to get control of this algae issue and i suspect skimming may help.
I have had them both ways and there are advantages to both. A removable cup makes cleaning super easy. remote skimmate reservoir can be nice and discrete but cleaning those little skimmer tops and tubes is a pain when they fill with gunk. Many designs require your to remove the whole skimmer.
not going to argue about it. I suggest you choose for yourself. Try having both a small skimmer with removable cup and a 1" tube where you remove the whole assembly to clean and see which one you find yourself procrastinating on.
