I removed it as well, I didn't like how low I had to point it to prevent the massive amount of surface agitation it created. On top of that with it pointed so low it drained my tank down a lot when the power to my return was turned off. So much so that my gyre pumps were close to running dry. I think it is a great idea, probably best suited for a peninsula style tank.

I didn't like the excess drainage into the sump when the power was off either.

What is the dimension of the RS sump for the 250? Thanks in advance
