Hello - I have my new Nuvo 40 cycling for a couple of weeks now. Last piece of equipment I am looking to add in a couple weeks is a skimmer. I’ve been researching for a while and I am having trouble finding a reputable skimmer that fits in one of the accessory chambers. At the moment I am thinking about ditching the filter stock to go with a Tunze 9004 DC skimmer. But I’m concerned that removing the sock may lead to larger particles staying in tank/ AIO sump. If you have a similar sized Nuvo, I’m very interested in any thoughts, ideas recommendations for the skimmer. Thanks in advance!

You'll still want the filter sock and/or media baskets (InTank makes a great upgrade, so it's worth checking out), so yes - your concerns are well-founded. So you're looking for a skimmer in addition to your filtration (socks or media baskets). Tunze, IceCap and Bubble Magus all make good nano skimmers from what I've read.

Thank you very much for the feedback. I’ve recently been made aware of the PLS-50 skimmer from mode aquariums, thanks to Maximus93101. It fits in the accessory chamber so it would be a great solution. Just trying to get in touch with them to make sure they are still shipping them out.
