ok so i am designing a skimmer and i found a fairly simple design i like how ever i have one question... how do you get the clean water out of the skimmer and back to the tank?

its a basic design so i know it probably is not to hard but i want to know...

my first theory it was by the basic siphon principle but that just does not seem right and i want this clear before i build..

your better off getting a used skimmer cuz designing one is a pain in the but.

 

u better start off with a skimmer pump which gives u a nice bubble output.

 

people use sponges (some skimmer companies too) to separate the bubbles from the water so it doesnt get in the main tank.

 

try to design a adjustable outlet .
