I'm picking up a coralife 220 skimmer which is Rated for 220 gallons. My prob now is my tank is about an inch and a half away from the wall so I'd pretty much have to do a sump. I plan on attempting a home made one this weekend otherwise ill have to move the tank out or find another way to hang it on cause I have a canopy on it.

I would go for the sump personally ! Is your tank drilled or are you going to use an overflow box ? You'll have a sump in the future anyway lol so why not just go for it now ?

Could use a CPR overflow w/out drilling...

Quick tip. When you do research dont just take one person's advice as there are many many different opinions on what is correct and what is incorrect. You will find youself with a majority vote at the end. Check all the websites!

Personally, I'd go with an eshopps overflow box. When I was researching overflows for my tank, I found a lot of people had trouble with the CPR overflows flooding the floors in power outtages and the such... But eshopps seems to have the least chance to fail. And they're rather reasonably priced.

But this is JMO

My tank is an inch away from the wall though with a canopy so unless I drain it and move it or get a new tank and move everything I'm limited.

Just an idea... What about puttin an overflow on say the left side, and have the return on the right side?

Wouldn't I have to cut the canopy then? Everything is snug underneath it.
