I have been looking for a way to effectively surface skim my 46 gallon tank. I have a coralife super skimmer 125 gal and have been looking for a surface skimming mod. I have yet to find any directions for a surface skimming mod, but I did find a few pictures of one.
Im thinking about attempting this mod on my own, but my question is this: in theory, would this work if all I did was add this pvc to where the skimmer suctioned right below the surface? Or, would this offset some balance of suction, water pressure, or something else that is vital to the proper functioning of the skimmer?
I believe anyone with a good understanding of the mechanics and physics involved in a skimmer would be able to answer this. I have attached some pictures of the mod i found below.
Thanks in advance
