    Any DIY or store bought solutions for this odd skimmer drain outlet on NYOS 160? I just have a kinked hose that comes out of it. Less than ideal. Was hoping someone else came up with or found a solution.

    A 90° won't work?

    I would love something like this from a broken thread on Reefcentral from user @fx035 :

    Anyone know what the parts and size of the parts might be?

    Thanks for replying @Khh27 Do you think it's just the standard RO Push fitting? Do you have this skimmer as well? I wish I had calipers to check. I suppose I could just buy a couple if they're not too expensive.

    Nyos must have listened to customer complaints. The new Nyos 160 has a built in elbow off the collection cup.
    Maybe you could call Ecotech and see what they could do for you?

    Can you let me know how you hooked it up? And is that the 160? Or Quantum 120? Either way, I'm curious to see more and get more details about your mod.

    thanks :)

    I bought my 160 a year and a half ago through Fragtastic reef and it comes with 90 degree drain built in to to cup.
