I just ordered a nwb one rated for 150 gallons it says to keep it in 5-8 inches I think. I'm putting mine where the water comes in from tank, 1st compartment. Hope that helps.

Thanks. I finally had to contact them directly since not getting very many responses which I am kind of surprised since I have heard a lot of good things about Reef Octopus skimmers. They told me for my skimmer it would do best in 9" of water.
Thank you for replying.

I have the Octo XS200 which is the same body but with a better pump. It's recommended to have it in 8"-10" of water.

Here's an old pic of my sump with the original NW200 skimmer, which has since been upgraded to the XS200.

12"-14" is probably too deep for any skimmer.
