    hi everyone this is my first post on here
    i was thinking about buying a Reef Octopus DNW-110-6520 Recirculating Protein Skimmer for my 50 uk gallon reef tank, i dont have room for a sump im using overhead 4 chamber trickle filter but i also have a 2000ltr ph canister filter with uv light. i read about this skimmer and wondered if it would be possible to run my external filter thru it someway? would it be too powerful at 2000lt phr? or should i just use a normal overflow, i was going to buy a reef octo**** hang on but we cant get them with UK plugs,
    thanks eveyone

    As long as you setup the skimmer that water goes to skimmer first then to the canister filter.
