Given your 60 gallon or so total water volume we would recommend the F5 - which is the medium sized one. Its retains a small footprint in your sump but can still treat up to 100 gallons so you have a 40% upside if you need it. As far as placement, we recommend that it be placed next to your skimmer with the output tube as close to your skimmer inlet as possible. The output tube is 1/2" sch 40 pipe so it can be easily plumbed from across the sump if you need to physically locate the reactor away from the skimmer. We don't glue the output pipe in. The elbow at top is glued into the cap but the remaining pipe is just press fit in... Again, this allows you to plumb it to suit your needs.
