Extention adapter

Hi Slief, I just pick up a BK DC180 with red dragon mini speedy DC pump for my 150gal DT. I am run into an issue that I cannot mount the controller outside the stand. The controller is too big that I can not slide it on the back of the stand. At the moment it temporary inside the stand. Most of other skimmer has the adapter between the pump and the controller like in the picture. Is it possible to install something like that?

Also my skimmer is running at lowest speed and currently at 15W. Skimmer is at 7.25 of water. How long will it take to break in and when do I need to adjust the power? What is the optimal power setting for this skimmer? I have total around 50inches of fish at the moment.
