    Looking at buying SM202.
    1) What feed pump would you suggest
    2) Can the feed pump and the return be in the same chamber of water

    Bulk Reef Supply 1) My preference would be the Sicce Syncra Silent 2.0, though any pump around 500gph should do the trick.
    2) That isn't any issue at all.

    1. What is the output height inches for the Skimz Monzter SM202? Is there a way to extend the output height?
    2. I see that the total height is 22.83”. My cabinet is 24.5" will I need more then an inch and a half clearance?
    3. I have a 150 gallon reef tank that has been running with a small outdated skimmer for almost 20 years - would moving up to the SM252 be overkill for this size tank?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi David,

    The bottom of the return pipe sits at 10 1/4" inches. The absolute minimum height to allow you to remove the cup would be about 23 3/4". 24" would be comfortable but a little tight so 24 1/2" would be fine. Just make sure you have the room to clear any other obstacles to actually get the cup out from under the cabinet once removed.

    I think the SM202 would be plenty of skimmer for your system and you are going to be amazed at what your old one wasn't pulling out! The SM252 is probably going to be overkill unless you have a ton of fish and feed heavily.

    I hope this helps!
    Have a great day :)
