How much clearance does this skimmer need above the surface of the water? And can you recommend an air pump for it?

cherubfish pair,

Thank you for your inquiry. The top of the Fission Nano Skimmer should be approximately 2-3 inches above the water surface for optimal performance. The included pump with this unit has a venturi intake which does not require a separate air pump for operation. If you have any further questions, please feel free to let us know.

Will this skimmer fit into a Nano Cube 6 tank?

cherubfish pair,

Thank you for your inquiry. With the included pump, the Fission Nano Skimmer has an overall measurement of 6.5" x 2" x 2.5". Due to the small amount of space available in the back of the 6-Gallon Nano Cube, the skimmer may not properly fit inside the filtration compartments of the tank. The Fission Nano Skimmer can however be placed inside the main section of the aquarium.
