    Default protein skimmer mod

    Has anyone adjusted plumbing on a protein Skimmer ? I have a euro reef with a sedra 3500 needlewheel pump that I got used ,and want to put in my very limited space sump. I have a trickle filter that I turned Bio ball section into refugium, and all I have for space is around that, with one of the corners of refugium angled to allow more space on that outside corner. That is where I would need Skimmer, with air inlet arm going one way and 90 degrees in the other direction would be the pump. So what I would have to do is cut new hole in Skimmer and extend the plumbing for the pump and cover old hole. Hole I have to cut is 1 1/4 ". Any suggestions if anyone has done something like this ,what to cut acrylic with? And would bubbles from pump be effective with say 6 " + extra plumbing from pump to Skimmer body? Thanks!

    Yes the adjustable outlet lol, and the plumbing already just goes into body straight no angle. Any suggestions for cutting new hole in Skimmer body?
