Got a new Bubble Magus roller. I was barely able to fit it in my small sump. I put a couple of wood rulers across the euro braced side and the filter is hanging on the ruler :) slightly tilted.
Currently the float valve is about 3" higher than the water level. Is that too much?

Update: I found my old acrylic skimmer stand and it works nicely with my BM roller filter. No more tilt and it was also able to get a few turns of the motor running as it got dirty. I think it is going to work well for the most part. Maybe would have been better if the filer roller was of smaller microns so it caught smaller particles.
 

When is the last time you traded frags with someone either locally or via shipping service?
