great skimmer! just make sure it fits where you need it too. i had one but sold it because deeper than 5" in the sump it did not perform. in my case my sump level is 11" so after raising it 6" off the bottom i did not have clearence. i decided to go with a aquac it runs in deep water i actually have the gate valve toatally under water and it works great.

im also looking at the sro xp2000sss. i like the smaller footprint. my reef lobster runs the fuge so i want to leave it as much room as possible. some more input with people with these two skimmers would be great :)
