Jardli Surface Skimmer

2Hr Aquarist Commentary: A surface skimmer helps to improve gaseous exchange, which is essential for increasing CO2 levels safely. I would not run a planted tank without this very simple but invaluable device. A device like this is both cheap and effective. 

If you have a smaller tank, the one by Koller is more compact and may fit better.
