I'm looking at purchasing a protein skimmer for my new marine tank (its all in the planning stages). I have got a 270Litre tank (approx 70 US Gallon). There are two options available to me :
(1) A hang on the back protein skimmer (external)
(2) An external one, such as Deltec APF 600 Protein Skimmer, underneath the tank.
I have no sump, and I can't find the required information anywhere. My question is:
Can I put the external Deltec APF 600 Protein Skimmer underneath the tank, this would mean a maximum return height of 230cm from the base of the protein skimmer. Is this acceptable? Would I have to fit another pump to boost this? Or am I just better going for the hang on the back, such as a Red Sea Prizm Protein Skimmer?
