    Thank you for looking. I am setting up my first SW tank this week. I couldn't fit the skimmer in chamber 1, so I put it the 2nd (middle) chamber.
    1. Will this be a problem? As in, will it function efficiently?
    I plan on running ~30lbs of Rock, mostly cured dry, with some live. Along with carbon and sponges or floss, also in one of the chambers.
    2. Should I put it in the first chamber or will it be ok in the second?

    Probably not an issue.
