The skimmer box/prefilter, sometimes called a siphon box, is where water from the aquarium starts its journey to the other components of this type equipment. Even though this box can be thought of as a prefilter, its real purpose is to transport surface water from inside the aquarium to the top of the trickle section usually located below the aquarium. These units are mainly designed as a siphon box that sits on the inside and outside top edge of the aquarium. It also functions as a surface skimmer and can serve as a prefilter.

Determine the depth at which the protein skimmer functions best, based on manufacturer recommendations. The sump box for your aquarium, whether it placed under your aquarium as a separate unit or as part of your filtration system, should hold the proper depth of water for the skimmer.

In This Update I cover how the New CORAL BOX LED MOON is doing over the 20G Aquarium which is serving as a Frag Tank QT for Fish. Its More of a Observation Tank than QT.
I also got a new Protein Skimmer the AquaMaxx HOB skimmer. I got it from Marine Depot, So far I really Like it. It Pulls some mean fish Poop out of the tank. I was pretty impressed because as soon as I got it up and running it was already pulling skim mate.
Id like to try and hold off on getting another tank, but im really liking thos Innovative Marine Tanks. Just a matter of saving up for it, Id like a 30g Long. I like the All in one Tanks, I did think about drilling this 20G Long, But I really didnt want to run a sump on it.
