Question SWC Octopus Skimmer util. Pump ?

This skimmer is going outside the sump. Will a maxijet 1200 powerhead provide for its supply needs. If not I have a small utility pump but takes up alot more sump room. Your thoughts please.

It is a SWC/Octopus DNW 150 recycling skimmer going on a 72 gal tank. It is rated at 186 gal. The recycle pump is attached and is a OCT 2000.

That's a recirculating skimmer. The maxijet should be OK for feeding the skimmer.
