You didn't try to set it outside the sump? I kinda thought thats what the big old u-tube was meant for, up and over the tank side. But, if your notusing it outside the sump, then you don't need that big ol tube in there. Lean the pump on its side, and direct plumb that baby with about 3-4" of pvc should about do ya. No?

That lil tube allows yoiu to sit that thing on the side of the sump?
By by the looks of the pump itself, it looks just like th eolder model Reef Octopus, thats why I looked at those.
