I wouldn't recommend this for a 5 gallon tank. Its really too large for that. You want to get their Nano Skimmer if you have only a 5 gallon tank. This is more for 40 - 90 gallon tanks.

Yes, like all protein skimmers, this is ONLY for use with saltwater tanks. It wont create bubbles with freshwater - no skimmer does.

Protein skimmers are generally not used in freshwater tanks.
Any protein skimmer can be used in a saltwater tank.
Just make sure that it is large enough for your water volume.

You wont need a sump for this protein skimmer. That is what makes it unique. This simply "hangs on" the back of the tank and skims. It is a very easy skimmer to use. Just plug and play. It is our most popular skimmer also!

As per Mrs. J I must buy a protein skimmer that does not leak any salt spray outside the confines of the aquarium system. Is the Hydor skimmer better in this respect?

The skimmer does not leak salt spray. The unit is designed to hang on the back of a saltwater aquarium. The water is pushed up from the pump which is submersed in the water and enters the reaction chamber of the protein skimmer. The skimmer removes Dissolved Organic Compounds from the water and collects those in the collection cup. The filtered water then returns to the aquarium from the return pipe. No salt spray is produced.
