thats actually a great little skimmer, i have a buddy with it on his 40g breeder and its works like a charm its been running over a yr now with no issues, i was contemplating getting one myself for my 36g bow front but i really dont need it for a fish only.

the more circulation the better, and you can point them at each other to diffuse the current.

I was looking at that little skimmer for my 40 breeder, bit the write up says its for 30gal and less. Good to hear it is working on your fiends tank. How often does he do water changes? how many fish, coral in his tank?

thanks

Lightly stocked with a lot of corals he has maybe 4-6 fish with a taotronics led fixture and a fluval 406 canister and that skimmer, and weekly water changes and canister maintenance.
