if submerged deeper the water level in the body will continue to rise and cause the skimmer to overflow very easily. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Both will be a great option!
For better control and tuning the Regal with a DC pump will work great! The DC pump does cost more but offers one more line of tuning. You can get great performance out of the SRO-5000 as well while saving a small amount of money. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Very nice skimmer By Mark on 8/18/2015Mark would recommend this product to a friendThe pictures don't do this justice, this is one nicely built beautiful skimmer. I saw the other review for the SRO 6000SSS where the tideline 48 sump is mentioned. I went ahead and researched and got that sump and the white with black trim on the sump really goes well with this skimmer and this skimmer fits perfectly in the sump. I have had a few other nice skimmers, but right now I am very happy with this one. The skimmer I am replacing wasn't bad, so I didn't expect to see a lot of junk and I haven't, but this has produced some nice skimmate for only the few days I have been running it. I also got the neck cleaner and I am overall very pleased with the setup. Running on a 225 moderate load fish and corals.
