Left back side. No mods as the skimmer has an adjustment knob that controls an angled cut rotary valve to regulate the rate the water flows out of the unit thus allowing water level adjustment to be made. I will say that either an ATO or a hang on glass bottle siphon type is really needed in order to dial in the skimmer. I does really collect a lot of protein.
