Thanks I'll take a look online to verify but which side would the W/pump connect?

From looking at the picture it's the one on the left the one on the right is the output it has the turndial at the top the red one. IMHO they are not good skimmers they put out too much micro bubbles

All right News update!!! From the help and accurate info i was able to locate and setup the Skimmer which has a nice buuble going on with the Rio 2100. But this is a STARTER Skimmer for me and i'll have my Refugium with a Much better grade Skimmer (With instructions) setup by Mar 2011. Thank you ALL very much and I'll be back as i develope and row in the Reef world.

Oh yes indeedy, its up and running like a charm. I'll keep it going for the next month or so but got my eye on a Octopus for my 55gal Refugium i'm building. Thx SW for the great advice.
