Anyone have any experiance with the reef octopus nwb-150?... I really need some help...

I don't see why you couldn't just raise the return outlet. I had similar issues as the water in my sump is 11 deep, though I just put a cheap plate under it to solve the issue lol.

Just get a larger piece of PVC and use that for the red tube so it's above the waters
