www.redseafish.com has the manual in .pdf format. Helped me hook mine up. Just make sure the little square baffle is in the bottom of the middle tube. Mine fell out and I got what looked like a tornado in there

IMHO, I would get rid of the rio, and get a mag drive to run the skimmer with. Rio's suck big time

We tried using a RIO 2800SS for a main pump and it was real loud. I use it to move water to the sump now.

I have a MAG7 for my main pump and a MAG5 for my skimmer. My tank is only 75 gal though.

well deppends. the rio you have you say is a 2100? i assume that means 2100 GPH? so if thats the case i would (if it were me) replace it with a mag 24. If your trying to reach 2400 GPH.
