Well I think I got it but idk what to do with this last tube!


EDIT:

Uh oh! I think I'm gonna have to order a smaller one! It barely sits inside the stand and it all the way to the top so I'll never be able to get the cup off, and of its inside the sump I don't think it will fit at all!

The other tube attaches at the 90 degree fitting coming from the bottom of the cup. It is used to drain the cup into a bucket or what have you.

Ah got you! Well looks like I need to try to sell this because it dosnt fit under my tank! Stupid mistake not checking dimensions first! I checked the other one but at the last minute I decided to get this one and didn't look at the dimensions! My own fault!

If you use the drain hose on the cup, you dont have to take the cup off, right? You can have it drain into an empty coffee can or something?

Is this correct? Can anyone confirm? Idk if it will fit even that way because the thing literally come to the top of my stand with our the sump and idk I'll have to just try it if this is the case and that will work!

You will still have to remove the cup every week or so to wash it out. Can you tilt the skimmer sideways after you've emptied the cup to remove it? If so, it can be done.

I would not let it drain whenever into an external container. I would take out the stopper and empty it manually. The reason is, if something goes foul inside the tank, and the skimmer starts going nuts, it will empty the tank, or at least the sump onto your floor.

That's makes sense and I don't want to happen! I don't even think I could tilt it because it literally is to the brim on the stand like its iffy it will even fit without the sump do I doubt it! I can't return it either so I'm screwed! It's my own fault. I put it on CL and got a buyer today but then they just backed out. If anyone needs it please let me know!!!

What about cutting out the bottom of the stand and sitting the sump on the floor underneath? That should give you a few inches.
