DIY Protein Skimmer, Large Capacity ???

I am posting a question, not a solution...

I am wondering how to build a large capacity skimmer (to service about 1000 gallons worth of tanks) that is NOT an airstone design... preferably a venturi design...

Recirculation would be a plus, since I am looking for an efficient skimmer, but that will not be sitting in a sump...

Any ideas would be pleasantly welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that... some good ideas there... I will study the pictures... I think I could easily adapt the ASM G4 I have sitting in a sump now to work this way...

There isn't much you could do to a G4 that would enable it to handle 1000 gallons. The skimmer itself is way too small.....
