This skimmer will fit in the Ruby 36 sump that Trigger makes. Have a great day!
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to fitting this skimmer into the Emerald 26 sump. This would NOT fit into the Emerald 26. It would be just a little bit too large. I can say however if you are looking to fit a larger skimmer onto this sump, I would recommend looking into a space saving skimmer that houses the pump in the base of the skimmer. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
There is not an hourly limit for the skimmer. In most cases if you are planning on running ozone you can add a bag of carbon to the output and in the collection cup. This is often why we recommend an ozone reactor instead of running ozone and your main skimmer at the same time.
This will work great with a heavily fed 90 gallon tank!
The optimal height will change depending on the load of your tank as well as many other factors. Typically around 7 inches or the lower end will make it harder for the skim to reach the top causing darker thicker skim. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
In most cases you will base the volume off of the tank. If the sump is large enough with a large refugium you can take that into consideration however for the reefer you can simply base the skimmer off of the tank volume The 180i would be a great fit for medium bio-load. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This skimmer is unable to be run externally and will need to be placed in a sump. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This will have a 6' power cord. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Omega 180i would be a great choice for a tank setup like that.
It would be 180mm :) With most skimmers the model number actually correlates to the diameter.
