MSX 200 Protein Skimmer

    Hi,
    So I'm needing a skimmer and I found a Reef Octopu sMSX 200 that I can get a good deal on. It isn't going to fit in my sump though... Does anyone know if this can be run externally? It doesn't say it can be in the product description, but couldn't I just sit it on the floor and put some pipes on it? Has anyone done this?
    Thanks!

    I dont have any experience there but IMO if it doesnt say anything about running externally I wouldn't waste the money on it, I'd imagine that even if you were able to get it to work it wouldn't be nearly as efficient as it would be in sump

    MSX is a different brand, not made by Octopus (but they have similar designs). They cannot be run externally.
