Best skimmer with a small footprint

I need to get a skimmer for a 55 corner tank. the sump is a 10 gallon. I want the BEST with consideration that there isn't much room in the cabinet on the sides either.
Thanks, Recommendations appreciated.

Skimmer talk is very subjective since we all have different experiences. I've had aquaC, vertex, octopus, and euroreef.
A while ago I decided to spring for a high end skimmer, and I'll never look back. The bk is extremely well built and thought out. Also keep in mind most sites aren't showing the specs on the gen 2 red dragon pumps for some reason.

If you really want the lowdown call the guy at royal exclusive. He has always been a huge help if needed.

For your tank i would go with the Bubbleking mini 160.

I have the 200 and it is superb.

Pm me if I can be of any more help!

Good luck.

Check out the bubble magus NAC-7. Ive never owned one, but have heard they are very nice! I have the octopus 110 on my 50g and really like it. I was going to get the NAC-7 but found a really good deal on the octopus. But the bubble magus has a smaller foot print.

I have been researching the Super Reef Octopus 1000SSS. Not bad for $300 and a small footprint.

Thanks all for the feed back. The RO 50, 110 and BM NAC 7 will all actually fit in the current stand and sump. Its nice to hear the positive feed back on these!
