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.

Would this skimmer, (SK202), be appropriate for a 120 heavily stocked, (with a 55 gallon sump)? Would it be undersized if I later added a 40 gallon frag tank to the system, (200 gallons total, heavily stocked)?

If the skimmer was fed with a slower amount of water, (Say 200 gph) would this cause problems with the pump, or would it just skim less of the system per hour than advertised? I'm trying to get away from a feed pump and would prefer to feed the skimmer from my display drains, which would be about 200-300 gph.

Thanks for your time.

Great question!
This skimmer will work great on a 120 gallon system and in the event you add on a frag tank as long as there are not too many fish this will work great! Ideally you will not want lower than the 396 GPH flow rate as this will impact the water height and skimmer performance. You certainly can run a manifold off of your return pump instead of overflow drains. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
