I have the Pro 75. I am a newbie to saltwater and the tank has been up and running for about 1 week. As of now I still have the bioballs, I plan on removing them after ~6months. As far as the skimmer is concerned it produces lots of bubbles but not much GUNK. I am told that skimmers need to be "broken in" I will give it some time before I complain. Overall it looks like a good system and for the price it can't be beat.

That would cause micro-bubbles to be returned to the main. So 5 baffles total.
Also, what return pump do you plan to use?
A Mag 9.5 w/ a SCWD.
I was under the impression that a 20 gallon tank was too wide to fit (cabinet is right at 12 inches).
The way my stand is built I have 12.75 in. of clearance under the tank. A 20 will not work w/ 12" but a 15 gal might if you still want to DIY. This is quite a project huh! I think my head is going to explode before I get to build mine lol- best of luck.
