Fed up with the diffuser box in the tank, and looking for a solution to add additional filtration should I ever want to run carbon in my tank, I modded my Coralife Super Skimmer 125.

Basically, all I did was direct the outflow from the skimmer into a hang-on-back Aquaclear 70 filter.





It works quite well. I've since jammed a couple filter sponges into the Aquaclear which has pretty much elimated bubbles from entering the tank (there are still a few here and there). But the best part is I no longer have that giant diffuser box inside my main tank. Cool

That's a pretty slick rig. Is the AquaClear unplugged with the pressure from the outflow doing the work?

Yup, the Aquaclear is unplugged. The outflow from the skimmer is more than enough.
