yes but i do not have that box on it. the box that prevens the air bubbles from going in to the sump. but i have riged up some thing with a lot of sponges and some live rock. now i am not getting bubbles in to the return pump. but now i have more room for live rock. YES!!!! you can never have too much of that stuff. but i will have to see if the lfs has that box, i have to go up there in a few min to get a maxi-jet 600 (like you said) to pump the water in to the skimmer. right now i ahve a cap 1200 on it. and that is pumping 550 gph in to the skimmer. i think that might also be part of my problem. but i have had it on the tank for about 30 min and it already has pulled out some green skim from the water so i know it is working well.

I love the box that came w/ mine, that is where I keep two bags of Chemi-pur. The return water from the skimmer has a perfect flow for that type of application.
Keep me posted

so i went to the lfs to day and talked to one of the guy there and they just gave me the box to stop the bubbnles. i guess they have to take it out of the box to fit the pump in it so you are paying for it. i also got a check valve for the retunline from the sump. man are those thing $$$ the store wanted $34 for it. but man i love that skimmer now. no bubbles and it is alread kicking out stuff. it just took some time for me to get it set right. i will post some pic tomorrow after school of the full sump.

and with the extra room i got about 6 lbs of live rock rubble from the lfs too. and i still can add more. i think i have about 10 lbs + in the sump right now.

hey dose a fug need sand? or can i put some plants down there with just the live rock rubble? i would like some mangroves and some other macro.

Mangroves need something to plant them into. Most macros you can let tumble in the current. If you combine types you might end up with one outcompeting the other for nutrients and killing off the weaker macro.
