I am looking a a skimmer it is this one Octopus Extreme Skimmer w/pump - Model 200: Premium Aquatics

It is says that all skimmers work best in 8'' to 10'' of water these big things do not go in the tank but in the sump right. I was thinking that they would pipe the water down to the skimmer and then pump it back and the skimmer would just go under the tank??

Then I found this one it says internal/external http://www.premiumaquatics.com/Merch...Code=Clearance
what you guys think? I don't really want a big thing like that in the tank if I could avoid it. Still learning lol

That skimmer would go in the sump (the first one). If you have a sump, the skimmer takes water out of the sump, skims it, and sends it back into the sump where it will be returned to the DT. Hope this helps.

Well I talked to the guy at the LFS that sold me my tank and at first he said yeah no problem you can make that tank into SW. Then I brought up about a overflow and sump and how I would go about hooking it all up with the rim that holds the tank. Then he asked if I was the type of jebo with the alum lid and cause it is he said no and because of L shaped rim that hold the lid to the tank. Me I dono I still think I can make it work cause the water never hits the alum part of the lid and I am sure I could rig a over flow some how. Firts this guy said all I would need to do is change my inside stuff and add salt water that the filter I use now would be more then enough "the trickle filter on there is one of the best filters you can get!" Years ago I thought this guy was then man I am not to sure anymore!

You will probably need to remove the lid anyways. Unless you plan on doing retrofits, that lid WILL need to go.
