Hi guys, so I’ve finished cycling my tank and added two small clowns,  my tank was a tropical tank and the cabinet doesn’t have space for a sump. I want to get a skimmer but I’m struggling to find an external skimmer or a good Hang on back because I have a 1 inch lip at the top of my tank, the tank is 240 litres and I’m running a 1200lph canister with rubble and some filter wool, any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

I've used a Bubble Magus Q3 before, cracking skimmer!

Deltec also make decent external skimmers , before adding my own sump I had looked into deltec MCE skimmers . Could also be worth looking at .
