 Hello,  
 
 I  have  a  Chinese  Haqos  PS600  Skimmer  and  am  having  slight  trouble  using  the  hang  on  configuration.  The  pump  in  this  skimmer  is  supposed  to  hang  from  it  inside  the  tank,  however,  it  keeps  falling  and  disturbing  the  aquascape.  I  tried  taping  the  pump  to  the  skimmer,  however,  that  too  is  not  a  permanent  solution.  
 
 I  have  attached  pictures  to  illustrate  the  problem,  please  let  me  know  if  you  have  any  ideas.

 Hi,
 
 You  could  do  some  DIY  for  holding  the  pump  inside  the  tank.
 
 Try  using  the  aquarium  partition  clamp  to  solve  this  issue.  Use  the  clamp  inside  the  tank.  Have  a  glass  piece  suitable  enough  to  hold  the  pump  stuck  to  the  clamp.
 
 Some  pics  of  the  clamp  am  speaking  about   
 
 Link  1
 
 Link  2
 
 Choose  the  glass  that  can  be  inserted  to  the  clamp.

 You  could  get  that  in  local  fish  store.  
 
 Or  you  can  try  in  any  glass  hardware  shop.  They  might  have  that.  But  difficult  to  find  a  plastic  type  in  the  glass  hardware  store.
 
 Or  you  may  post  in  IAH  in  wanted  to  buy.   Thumb Up

 Thanks  a  million  Shelly  ..  I  will  try  to  get  it  from  a  local  LFS.  Meanwhile,  I  used  plastic  threads  to  tie  the  pump  around  the  light  fixtures  on  the  top  ..  They  are  holding  well  and  I  am  sure  that  will  work  till  this  arrives.

 Not  sure  if  the  clamp  can  hold  the  weight  of  the  glass  and  the  pump  since  kept  in  a  horizontal  way
 try  using  7  clamps  3  on  the  back  and  2  on  the  each  of  the  sides

 Hello  Shelly,  
 
 I  take  back  the  pump  working  fine  while  being  tied  from  the  top.  The  pipe  popped  out  from  under  the  acrylic  handle  of  the  skimmer  and  there  was  significant  loss  of  water  from  the  tank.
 
 I  am  still  waiting  for  the  clamps  ..  however  they  will  take  a  while  and  I  need  to  ensure  that  the  skimmer  works  atleast  till  then  ..  do  you  have  any  other  ideas.  
 
 @Ram,  thanks,  but  my  tank  has  side  reinforcement  glass  beams  which  may  interfere  with  the  clamp  on  the  side  ..  
 
 Any  other  ideas  ..  please  ..  i  am  desperate   Crying or Very sad

 Hi,
 
 You  could  try  doing  a  clamp  of  this  model  using  any  acrylic/plastic/glass  sheet.  Hook  the  clamp  to  the  side  glass  and  place  the  pump  on  the  clamp  base.
 
 Use  material  which  would  not  react  with  the  salt  water.

 I  broke  the  skimmer  ..  tried  to  clamp  the  pipe  to  the  acrylic  'hand'  ..  the  acrylic  snapped  ..  I  have  ordered  a  weipro  SA2012  from  ebay  sg  to  replace  the  haqos  ..  the  Haqos  pump  should  work  with  that  too  ..

 @GatorX
 Not  really,  the  ebay  SG  site  has  chinese  models  and  very  few  would  fit  the  space  I  have,  as  you  can  see  in  the  attached  pictures.  Also,  the  pump  is  good,  and  checked  out  some  reviews  for  weipro  online.  
 
 As  for  a  better  skimmer,  I  have  my  eye  out  for  Deltec  MCE600  which  is  ABSOLUTELY  ideal  for  my  setup.  I  am  on  the  lookout  for  that  particular  model  and  hopefully  would  have  it  by  early  next  year.

 There  was  someone  selling  a  deltec  if  i  remember,  otherwise  order  it  from  Singapore  and  have  it  shipped.
 
 There  are  plenty  of  online  stores  in  Singapore  that  ship  to  India.
 
 
 
 You  have  a  yellow  and  naso  tang  in  what  size  tank,  that  your  going  to  be  using  such  a  small  HOB  skimmer  ?

 My  tank  is  500  liters  ..  The  SA2012  is  rated  for  400  liters  on  a  1600L/H  pump  ..  I  will  be  using  a  2000L/H  pump  which  was  included  with  the  Haqos  PS600  rated  for  600  liters.  
 
 Pardon  me  for  being  stingy,  I  would  rather  purchase  is  thru  someone  in  the  UK/US/UAE  and  avoid  paying  shipping  charges  &  customs  duties
