    I've got a AquaC Remora for my 20H. It's actually down in my sump so I had to change the tubing from the pump to the skimmer and then I added some hard PVC below the return to eliminate any splashing noise. Love it. So glad I spent the money on a great skimmer right away.

    Please write a review of the Berlin X2 in the reviews section if you would after you get it going for a while. I would appreciate it. Not much info on it out there.

    Custom Built Square skimmer with a 30 gallon reaction chamber. Recirculating Sedra 9000 using a threadwheel for air induction, and a 800gph feed pump setup in a counter-current configuration. Skimmer has 4 cup cleaning jets setup on a solenoid that fire periodoically throughout the day. Neck cleaning is handled by a cascade style wetneck that runs 10 minutes every hour.

    Skimmer pump will soon be replaced by a Velocity t4 open face threadwheel pump with all ozone proof seals. After that I will start running ozone in the reaction chamber.
