I just purchased the coralife 65g protein skimmer and have read different ways to set up the skimmer. I am wanting to know where the line levels need to be such as the pump? Are you sure you want to delete this answer? This is what I found: Introduction The skimmer is said to allow setting it as a hang on back or in sump unit.
The unit is made of polycarbonate xoralife. Product Review First, the instruction skimmeer is well written and easy to follow. It has also a lot of graphics that support the written text and make the assembly a breeze… at least, in theory. I was going for the hang on back installation.

The unit is fixed to the back of the tank by 2 plastic screws. The pump has to be set between 3 to 4 inches below the water line. In wuper to do that, you have to cut a piece of flexible tubing and connect it to the intake of the unit and coraliffe outlet of the pump.
First, the tube is very hard to insert in both the unit and the pump. No suction cups, nothing.

It just hangs in the tank by the tube. Since only one screw is provided, the box is rather unstable and shifts left and right. The box is fitted coralire a white pad that goes at the bottom of the box and a fairly large black sponge that is supposed to retain the micro-bubbles exhausted from the unit.
The sponge has a hole in it to receive the outlet tube. Unfortunately, the hole is way too large and the tube fits very manhal in the sponge.
Needless to say that such a precise adjustment is hard to achieve mabual only a single screw to hold the whole thing in place. After turning the unit on, be prepared for a festival of micro-bubbles in the tank.
The return box is completely ineffective and is a worthless piece of plastic.
Conclusion The unit is not really built for a HOB application. My skimmer is now in pieces and waiting for the sump to be in place before Smimmer can use it. For falsely advertising their product as being a HOB unit, for their cheap and not working return box, I give this unit a poor 4 out of I can not comment on the efficiency of the unit for it is not installed yet, having no sump at the moment. I will post on that aspect at a later date.
But I think that the above gives a pretty good idea about what that unit is all about. This Site Might Help You. Protein skimmer for coralife 29 gallon biocube? Setup for a protein skimmer?
