I bought a used skimmer. Paid $80 shipped. I was told it was rated for 350-400 gallons 26" T x 6" W.

Should the this 90 degree PVC be turned up or down? This is where the water exits the skimmer. I took the skimmer apart to soak in vinegar and dont remember if it went up or down.

It looks like those thanks! The bottom square measures 11.5" L x 9" W x 8" T overall height of 23" and 6" W tubes.

Seems like this model would be in between 300-900 Gallons. $80 seems like a pretty good deal!

That's not a MRC skimmer as they use Beckett injectors. This looks like skimmers that a company called aquatecture produced a few years ago. They used the same Venturi that are being used on this one.
