I doubt a 4 bulb over a 75g will be enough though. I couldn't even keep one in a 55g with my 4 bulb.

The skimmer arrived today! I need to redo the stand I made for the older one tonight or tomorrow but it's up and running. I need to drop it about 2". It maybe took 5mins to setup. I was scared when I opened the box... glad there was a lot of styrofoam Fits like a glove!!!!

Same skimmer I got. Love love love it. I keep my water level right about middle. I don't like to wet skimmate and if down towards minimum water level takes while for cup to fill

I just hot the same one on Tuesday or Monday... I've got my water level where the cone starts. After 24 hours I'm pulling out nasty Stuff already. I do have a wet skim and trying to get a drier one so I'll lower a bit too!

It is tough, but if you shake the skimmer a little, you can see the water level make "waves" on the sides

What kind of pump does your skimmer have? I found out some issues with the one my reef octopus uses that may save you guys a headache if it's the same.
