What are folks using for their skimmer in a 220.6? I was sad to see that my existing skimmer (Regal 200SSS 8" Space Saving Protein Skimmer (VarioS) - Reef Octopus) is too tall to fit in the skimmer compartment and collides with the return/overflow lines. I don't want to remove the fuge wall.

I just set up my Waterbox 220.6 with the Reef Octopus Elite 200S and it seems to fit. Its a little tight getting the skimmer cup off due to the gate valve but has few inches of clearance when it is just sitting in the skimmer section of sump. It is not too wide at the base to need to remove refugium plate. I bought this skimmer based on another post by somebody who was running it on a 220.6.
