Cyano isnt necessarily gonna get fixed by a bigger and better skimmer. How is your flow?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

my flow is really good i have a aqueon 750 on one side of the tank and a 250 on the other which i think is my max cause i had a 950 and it was to powerful it was blowing my sand a little bit so i traded that and downgraded to the 750

This is the best information I can come up with after searching a few sites.
Not one site listed the inout and output sizes but according to this picture from petsolutions it appears it's adjustable.

so when it comes to skimmers and in my case with the nano and the pro the only differance is the size what really matters is the strength of the pump? am i understanding that correctly and on the picture which nozzle is going into the hose of the skimmer that top one or the long one coming out from the side

I know with the pro version its all the same exact skimmer with just different pumps. I took a picture of how my mj1200 is setup, if anything I think a longer hose might connect it well enough to the graduated size side.

I think you'll see better results. Not so sure it will clear up cyano but it should pull more gunk as it flows more water inside. In my opinion thats what I would try first. Not like you cant find a use for a mj1200 if it doesnt.

If you decide against it hit me up, I might be interested in a used nano remora myself. lol

any particular website u recommend ordering it from? i think it might work i found on a website a remora protein skimmer that actually comes with a maxi jet 1200 so if it comes with one then it has to be able to work on mine
