I'm sure this is a dumb question, but I have to ask.
I am setting up my first "sump style " tank this weekend, checking all the parts and equipment, and I'm familiar with my current HOB
-1 skimmer with collection cup that I pull off and pour down the drain. My new skimmer, Bubble magus curve 5, cup has a drain in the bottom with a foot long waste tube.
Do I run that waste tube into a bottle outside the sump, or use the extra piece of tubing they sent me and cut a 1" length , push into the drain hole in the reservoir, to allow 1" of the green waste water to sit in the collection cup, and then spill out the waste tube once its higher than the 1" cut tube?
I've watched you tube videos, some have the waste drain out of the tank, some have it draining back in the tank, but I see an inch of green liquid in the cup,has me confused.
BTW: don't look at my signature line, all my tanks are different, that's from 2006, have to change my profile and signature soon
