    in the details says that the Footprint: 23½" x 18" or 24" x 16½" or 21" x 18"

    is that mean that there are three deferent footprint sizes?

    thank you

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Saoud,
    Good question. The footprint will vary depending on how you decide to mount the pumps. Different orientations of the pump will end up with slightly different footprints.

    Looking at this skimmer for a 400 gallon reef. Does it have to be placed in sump or can it be plumbed outside the sump?
    Thanks, and love your site!!!

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Robby,
    All of the current models Vertex skimmers would have to be placed in the sump. Skimmers that could be placed externally would be the "recirculating" skimmers (Vertex does not currently make any models like this). This would be a model that could be plumbed externally and would be large enough for your tank. Thanks for the kind words!

  • Absolutely incredible performance By lflint on 4/22/2011

    This skimmer is super easy to adjust, easy to dose ozone, perfectly silent and pulls some incredibly nasty stuff out of the water. I use one on a multi-tank system as a replacement for a less efficient unit. Nitrate, nitrite and phosphate levels dropped through the floor and the water is crystal clear. Coral growth has accelerated. It's an expensive unit but worth every penny. Why buy an $800 unit that doesn't perform when you can spend some extra on guaranteed excellence.
