Turboflotor 1000 help

Is anybody running one of these? I am building a sump for a friend that is using this skimmer and I need to know what the optimum water level is for the skimmer chamber and what a good secondary pump would be. Would a MJ400 do it or does it require something more like a 1200? It is also using a rio 2500 for the recirc.

Thanks for the help.

When I used mine I used the RIO 2100 pin wheel and fed it with a MJ 900 or 1000. Water was around 7 - 8 inches in the sump. Not sure this is the preferred settings but it was working.

That sounds about right, I'll start with those and see where to go from there. Thanks.

BTW, did you like the skimmer and would you think its right for a 90g?

The skimmer is ok but to small for a 90 in my opinion. I feel it is good for a 55 and maybe a light bioload 75.
