Barb,....I love my 'dc' skimmer ( although not the same brand ) it's nice to be able to throttle things up or down for fine tuning with just a touch of a button ,... Also most have a " feeding " button that will shut the skimmer off for a few minutes when feeding or when doing some maintenance .

Thanks Dary. What brand do you have? I like the dc's to but most i have seen are way out of my price range.

I have a " seaside aquatic " model That I stumbled upon at my lfs ,.. Doug ( mr x ) seemed to know all about them,.. Rather inexpensive for what you got but works incredibly well

I'm loving my new jebao rw8's. Those rw15's should get that tank moving good. I've only got mine at half power.

Has anyone ever connected two tanks to make a sump? If so would you be willing to share your experience with me? I have an idea of what to do but not sure of specifics.

It is pretty much the same concept, just double. Hate valve after both return pumps to ensure flow matches perfectly. I'd also want lots of extra room in case of a power outage for the water to go instead of overflowing.

I plan on using one pump which i have already. Its an older Mag pump with a Y to conect two return hoses.
