LR works in a canister but is probably not the best idea in a clear acrylic protein skimmer.

Thanks for the suggestions. I moved some stuff around and found out that with the skimmer I can have more real estate in my tank. I took the powerful PH and put it where the Maxi400 was, took out the old filter I had in for movment (I was using it until I got PHs, but then never took it out), and put my heater in the skimmer. It looks much better in the tank now.
