The only issue I can see with it would be if you have an overflow box feeding the skimmer. If the water level drops then the skimmer pump could run low on water. If you don't have an overflow box and it's just the pump in the tank then I don't see any issue with it.

Ok and it has a pickup tube inside? So long as the pickup tube stays submerged it won't be an issue.

I highly recommend a sump in the future. I started with a 55g running a hob skimmer (aqua c remora) and canister filter. I upgraded to a 90g and turned the 55 into a sump and it's so much nicer. No heaters and hoses in the tank, skimmer is out of view. Only thing you see now is the powerheads, I have vortechs so you don't even see the cords.

Yea definitely want a sump just ordered a reef keeper elite so next thing is saving money up for overflow box, sump, piping, and a in sump skimmer I want a reef octopus I really like the brand so the one I'm looking at is like $400 I think so it's just a expensive switch but it'll happen before the end of year lol...I'm moving in June so gonna try to do it during the move

Sounds like you have it all planned out. I expect an upgrade thread to follow.
