      I have that brand of skimmer for my reef tank, it overflowed and all of the water ran into my power strip. Almost caused an electrical fire. I ended up getting a sump and placing it in there. No need to burn my house down!!

      i cut a hole in the collection cum abut half way up. then connected an air tube to it then ran the line under my tank into a 5 gallon bucked so all the protein go in there. i just check it every day or so. do u think that will be okay or will i be replacing too much watter?
