Product Questions

How accurate is the rating for these Skimz skimmers? I would like to put this on a 180 with 55 gal sump that's medium to heavily stocked. Also, does the ES2800 pump require to stay dry or can the unit be placed inside the sump?

Thanks for you help.

Great Question Phillip! This would be a good fit for a tank of that size. This unit can be placed inside the sump or externally, keep in mind it will need a separate feed pump of around 400 gph whether placed internal or external.
