Is there a simple way to modify this protein skimmer to work as an under your show tank sump protein skimmer?
It looks like I would have to figure out a way to make the entire thank air tight so would push the water up and into the tank above. This was a free skimmer and I have some time on my hands so I figured I'd ask.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to TRT! What skimmer do you have? Is it an 'internal' or 'External' model? A make and model would help us figure this out with you......OH, and pictures.....Oh we love our pictures around this place.
All the best,

You would need a sump first, that would drain down from the tank above, and pump back up to the tank from the return section. Then the Skimmer could be placed in the sump and kept at the proper level (or you can hang it over the side, or one of the baffles). You can't make the skimmer return back to the main tank from the sump because then the water would flow out of the cup rather than foaming.
