Sounds like a good idea to me, any settling chamber/fall out area is to be preferred above mechanical filtration. Removing after settling must be kept in mind as well.The reason is that I will have about 25cm free space below the skimmer. So if I put the Skimmer inside a smaller tank and then suspend it in the bigger one I can make use of the space below it for LR. I want the incoming water to be skimmed first and allow any debris to settle before it goes to the LR. I don't have the space to put the smaller tank outside. I hope this makes sense.
? It is a mess at the moment.Nice Thalion. Looking neat and professional
