DIY Surface Skimmer + Chiller Combo and Viable Option?
At the moment I've got my pump at the back of my tank pushing water through to my chiller which then pumps it to the front of the tank -
As you can see it's not particularly pretty. I was interested in creating a DIY surface skimmer and I wondered if I was to pump the skimmed water directly into the chiller (instead of having 2 pumps in the tank), would this create issues?
Obviously I'd need a different pump - the DIY guys I see online seem to love the Maxijet Powerhead though i'll have to look around to see what I can find here in Hong Kong - but otherwise does this seem viable?
