i would rather suggest a aqua C skimmer then this. honestly i would rather suggest a sump with an in ( or out ) of sump skimmer rated well beyond but thats just me. a skimmer isnt something you want to skimp out on. its great that your asking around, its also good to read online reviews. you may also want to look for a local reefing club for deals on equipment and to learn new things.

care to share more about your setup?

i also moved your post to the skimmer section to get more responses, you had posted in the reptile section. if your still having issues feel free to click my name on the left and send me a message. welcome to the forum.

im kind of new to this.. but thanks again for moving it to the skimmer section...

I just checked out the aqua C skimmer... looks pretty heavy duty.. and there seems to be a red knob where i think you connect a PVC pipe in.. not sure honestly... the only reason why i got the oceanic skimmer is because its quiet... but then i found out that it's really the pump that makes the noise not the actual skimmer... i heard also that you're supposed to have like a tea colour foam in the collection cup... im seing bubbles but their white... and theirs liquid at the bottom which has a yellow tea colour... do the bubbles turn teaish colour over time ??? i also got this skimmer because its cheap, i know you need a good skimmer ... but i want to make it affordable at the same time.. how much is the aqua C and is it loud???

Thanks for the advice!
