very hectic @leslie hempel, at the moment the water is a bit low at about 8 inches but will be changing my sump to accommodate this bugger

cool will be keeping an eye on your thread to see what you do.. i also have to make a small mod to the sump.. im basically adding a chamber to accomodate the skimmer.. im not sure what route of filtration im going to go hence me holding back a little..
im either going to continue with bio pellets or go zeo.. at which time i will decide on the flow pattern of my sump..

Also looking at going Zeo so maybe changing my whole sump and have everything internal
 
The skimmer is looking good !!
I can not wait to get my 2 x alpha 300 that is orderd from Nathan
 
ok so i have installed my alpha 200 this weekend, extreemly silent.. it started to pull dirt out of "clean water" i had collected for a waterchange and used to fill the neew sump i added prior to connecting and circulating the tank water through it..

my return pump is all that i can hear now..

very impressed with this piece of kit!

Just love these skimmers! Anyone in SA have the Alpha 300?
I would say you'r best bet would be Yuri and jumboswart...could also maybe ask Nathan who else ordered the 300 from him...:blush:
