This will be around 10" tall with cup and will work great on your tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The total height will be 11 and certainly will work well on a 12" tall tank.
The tubing required will be 1/4" ID (3/8" OD typically) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This skimmer would not work well as this would not work on a height of 7" height. If the tank is small enough under 25 gallons we would recommend passing on the protein skimmer and instead performing larger weekly water changes. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The bracket itself attaches to the back rim of the aquarium but the skimmer body itself must be situated inside of the tank.
