Well....there is no skimmer in this sump as it was built for a F/W tank. But you could simply install one if you wanted to. If the sump isn't long enough, you can always buy one larger. I think i bought this tub at Canadian Tire here in Canada, for about $20, but I've seen lots of different size ones for sale at Wallyworld and the Home depot. I bought the drawer set at Home Depot . It was $20 too, but I got it for $10 as three of the drawers were cracked along the corners. Since the drawers aren't holding any weight from the water, just the scrubbies, and it's sitting in the sump, it didn't need to be water tight. It is very simple to clean as the drawers just slide out, however the frame comes apart at the bottom of each one of the drawers. There is little plastic nubs that need to be pushed in and it lifts right off. As my hard plumbing is in the way of the drawers, I just cut the little nubs off to make it easier to lift each drawer straight up and off for cleaning. This thing is working amazingly.
This is the sump that got replaced.
I did some quick calculations in my head and I think I expanded my bio-media capacity by about 400%.
I hope this helps.
