I need direction I'm building my 20L this weekend. So far I got 10-10-10. 10 on my refugium and the bubblers out of the other sections. So 7.75 on my intake and 8.75 on my return.

Do you have any trouble getting to the skimmer and cleaning it out? It look pretty high under there

I have a gallon container for the skimmate to collect in. The collection cup comes out sideways.

Do you think the smaller the space the faster the water is moving = fewer micro bubbles?
