Do you have to reinforce the frame? It is strong enough to hold a 17 gallon filled tank? The ikea website says the top holds 50lbs, I wonder what 60p owners did.

I honestly don't think you need the 2217, my friend has a 2215 for his 60P, and it's already super powerful. I think with the 2217, you'll need to restrict the output valve so your tank isn't a...

Haha, that is really cool, it works fine. Mine never rotates, but yours is rotating probably due to the water current from your outlet, since it is so close to the skimmer.
