I want to get a small protein skimmer for my 180 litre Juwel Rio. Any recommendations? There's no sump, the tank has a plastic lid and there's about 5 cm gap between rear of tank and wall. Pic of tank attached.

Get something rated about 350 - 400litre
Don't underspec your skimmer
Hang on would be better and put it on the side imo

Thanks hammie. I (kind of) took your advice. I was looking at the Hydor Slim Skim (250 L) and Slim Skim Nano (160 L) and in the end went for the larger capacity. Installed it today and very happy with it. Looks great, it's quiet (with the tank lid closed) and the cup is half full of gunk already after just 8 hours.
