i did with my 65... I angled the output hose to pour water on the sump wall before it gets to the reservoir.. think of how you pour beer into a glass to minimize the head. That seems to work for me, no microbubbles in the display.

Had a vacation accident, so I learned the hard way. When I moved the skimmer to the sump of my 55 i drilled the cup and put a hose barb in.. drains the cup directly into the sewer plumbing. No more overflows!

I ran my css 65 for less then a day and it was picking up lots of nasty gunk. Can't believe everything it takes out was once in the aquarium. Only regret is i should've bought the biggest model they had.

What is the biggest model they have? I have a 175 and need a better skimmer, my old ETSS is just not cutting it on this size tank.

Man I didnt think it would be so hard to get another impellar. The LFS's don't have them. Telling me its going to take a couple of weeks. I hate it when you call a place and ask if they have something and they don't then they say "but I can order it for you!". I just wanna say "No kidding? I can too!". Thats the trouble with using these forums and being on the cutting edge, the LFS's never have anything talked about. Another example is LockLine.. I ask about LockLine and get a blank stare. I think a successful store would follow these forums and have stuff on hand for us instant gratification junkies!!!
