i use a surface skimmer like this one...

i have it hooked up to my aqua c pump intake. it took a bit of work to get the two connected, but it works great. i suppose if you have a filter, you should hook it up to that, but since i dont run a filter, i had no other place to go with it.

i ended up fitting a pvc pipe from the outlet of the surface skimmer to the pump intake. it was 100% custom, but it came out working nicely...

55gal FOWLR,
DIY stand and Hood,
AquaC Remora,
Coralife Lunar Aqualight (4x65W),
60 LB Hirocks Base Rock, 40 LB LR 50/50 Keys/Gulf
150 LB Playsand (~3-4 in DSB)
2 x Blood Red Fire Shrimp, 2 x Cleaner Shrimp
2 x Black and White Percula Clown, 1 x Orange Spotted Blenny, 1 x Red Stripe High Fin Goby
