Fresh or Salt?

Sure you can put them in there. Depending on the position and the type of tank two might not be desired or two might be inadiquate.

One would be better?
I guess i will wait until i have my protein skimmer
I found on ebay a Berlin Protein Skimmer Tripple Pass for 50$ which is freom 25 Gal up to 250 apparently...
I dont think that it will change something to put a strong skimmer in a 20Gal no?
Anyways, seeclone skimmers seem to be le cheapless one but as i can see on the forum, its not a good one

Does any pump fits on any protein skimmer?

The standard position is in the back corners blowing toward the middle center.

Although other variations are back corners blowing toward eachother, one back corner and 1 front side blowing toward eachother, two in the back corners blowing toward the middle and one blowing across the back, one blowing toward the center at the upper area of the water and one blowing toward the center mid way down the water level, etc.

It honestly depends on your setup, your live rock layout, your corals.

When I had a 20H going I had a little hang on back filter with out the media moving water plus two powerheads in the back corners blowing toward the front. The concept is to provide good water flow and random currents.

You should look up the manufactuers specs on the skimmer to size the pump.

If you look in my gallery at my full tank shots, you will see the two powerheads in the front, the third is on the let side, low and in the back of the aquarium, blowing behind the rock. The return pump is in the middle of the tank blowing towards the front and slightly to the right of the tank.
