    I run that skimmer on my 24gal Aquapod with the upgraded pump to a maxijet 1200. It doesn't produce a lot of flow at all as it drains out so you will be fine. It also skimms really well IMO. If you click on my aquapod link in my signature, you can see it setup!

    They are using needle wheel pumps in these arent they? I thooght it was another skilter but when i read they had needle wheels i thought they could work.

    Krish you are using the aqua c nano not the rio nano skimmer. The rio looks more like the old skiltered did.
