So I am new to the whole salt water aquarium thing and I am building my own as much as possible (I like to build stuff
) and I found these plans for a DIY Protein Skimmer Reef Workshop - DIY Protien Skimmer
. For the most part the construction is self explanitory of the main skimmer, but I am not familiar with what he means by a High(er) pressure pump is. As well as where, or how to hook it to this thing when I am finished. I am only building a 26 gallon aquarium so I am thinking this is way more then I need for this build (a larger aquarium may follow this one if all goes well with it). Do you think this is to much for a 26 gallon, or should I go one Ebay or a LFS
to get a $50 one? Any help is welcome.
