I purchased my salt water tank from craigslist, this being my first tank with a sump attached ( and never actually seeign one in person before ) - I shoudl have asked more questions , but I didnt.
I figured as long as I have all pieces , I shoudl be able to figure out how to set this up - I was wrong.
I have NO clue how to set up the protein skimmer , from the pieces I have -- I cant figure out how its supposed to be.
There was a tub of sand in the sump , but I have no clue - if the protein skimmer pump is supposed to go on it. - or for that matter - does the top of the skimmer stay above or below the water line....
So basically -- Help. I did take some pics , I hope they show my dilema.
Thanks in advance
I also - could not figure out , how to post 5 pics ( just the one below ) -- so i had to give you this link ( sry about that )
