After awhile it may produce less skimmate since it would not have anything to skim. My 1 pump 8.5" body is plenty on my 150G. I would not even hesitate to put my skimmer on a 225G.

Ro, how tall is it top to bottom? my issue is I will need to move some of my sand bed in the sump to get to the bottom, and the stand is 30" tall. so I need it to be 29, or less. how much do you want for it?
