Nice. How long have you been using it this way? Do you notice any difference in performance (better or worse)?

It's recommended to feed the effluent of a bio pellet reactor directly into the protein skimmer (which is required) or near your skimmers intake pump. I haven't hooked mine up yet, so it's nice to see how others have done it.


However, it looks like the intake Tee reduces the skimmer's intake slightly. That's why I was wondering about the effect on skimmer performance.
