To the reservoir I keep it in the back there's a pic few post back.

Just float sensors and controller. Would you run an aqua lifter pump?

Skimmer is in and running, i must say its extremely hard for me to grasp that this is a properly sized skimmer for my tank because its dwarfed compared to the vertex, however the vertex is size for roughly 250g. I also decided that ill give this skimmer 2 weeks or so to see what it pulls out, if its not sufficient, ill just buy a new pump for the vertex. By far the best benefit of this new bubble magus skimmer is that i dont need to run it all the way down to the end of the refugium to get it out, it comes out the front, between the refugium and stand. Pics to follow as soon as i get ahold of the laptop

Nice bro hope it works out for you my first skimmer was a Nac6 it was a good skimmer but the impeller in the pumps was no good but it was a beast when it was running. Still have it somewhere just got to look for it.

I could have easily fit a curve 9 or NAC77 but after reading the reviews of the curve 7 i felt it would handle the job nicely
