    Yes they do, but with this system your sump goes inside the skimmer.

    Hi Mekaeel. Those are actually the newer HY-10000 pumps with pin-wheel impellers pulling 4,800l/h of air each (according to the manufacturer). That skimmer has 6 of them. The thing is a beast. You should have seen the crates it came packed in.

    Waaaaaahahaha
    That is SMALLeish skimmer, YOH! :thumbup:
    I think that JaquesB is right, you dont need a tank, everything can be housed inside the skimmer. Better get some diving lessons so you can snorkel as well.
    Thanx for sharing :thumbup:
