    Hoping for an inexpensive solution. Bought an older 130 model. Skimmer is not complete. No $ left...lol. Is there a skimmer that will work without going with the media basket/tunze combo? Even temporarily until I can save up for that upgrade (already did the pump)? Thanks in advance!

    Water changes are probably your best bet.

    I have a 130d and after seeing so many great reviews on Tunze 9001 and intank media basket I purchased both. The skimmer is horrible for me total waste of $117 plus $50 for media basket. For the life of me five weeks still was not skimming right. I even contacted Tunze for help and tried all their suggestions. Don’t like how low skimmer has to sit in water either. Took it out put stock skimmer back in. Loved the media basket but doesn’t fit with stock Red Sea skimmer which is bulky and loud but at least it skims great.
