this skimmer went on a 265 gal. it runs in tandem with a second reef octopus that i already had-one at each end- and is working well. am taking 2.5 to 3 cps crap out of my softy reef with lots of fish every wk. yes I know i should have under tank plumbing but my tank doesn't have holes in it and i don't want to risk doing it myself. so you work with what you have. anyways i have had no problem with skimmer, started working after about 3 days. only thing- i took the elbow off the overflow discharge so it would drain faster and help stop any chance of overflow spillage
