Had to do something so I put my skimmer together. This thing is huge it stands
2ft tall and I will need a full foot in the sump for it. Instructions say it opperates from 6-10" of water not to be higher than the outlet. Yet the outlet is only 6" tall. Does that sound odd to anyone other than me?

Nope. Mine is the same way. Was a pain to get it to skim. I still need to go get some PVC to make the outlet taller.

I'm thinking if making the water line only 7" deep do you think that is a bad idea?

Contacted the place that I bought the lights from and they say that I should have gotten the lights by now. They aslo said that they got a damaged shippment so they will not be able to ship out again till Friday. They also say that they can't find the tracking of my package. Sounds like a bunch of BS if you ask me.

That stinks . I will say this thought about the hard plumbing . If you do it right you will have no vibration noise. Both my tanks overflows and returns are all hard plumbed and are super quiet .

I bought the 120 Watt Dimmable with Digital Timer coral reef LED fixture With Moonlights off of Amazon. The company that sold them to me is complete filtration services INC. I ordered them on the 25th.
