you have done a massive mistake if i am correct. This can cause a disaster when the power is off.
Since the outlet from the return pump is so low, when you turn your sump off, it will cause a syphon effect and it will not only suck water from the drain but also from the return pipe. Bro, the sump dimension will not be able to hold that much water i guess. Have you checked it out?

If not, then immediately check it and see if the water level goes lower than the over flow box's drain hole.

If it happens, then you need to shorted the return pipe's length.

there are holes drilled in the return pipe to tackle the problem you mentioned

You can add a NRV (No Return Valve) in the return pipe to make sure. Water flows in only one direction then

Hi Kaustav,

Can you please share, if possible, the price of the protein skimmer and the tube lights. Also, from where did you buy them.

Regards,
Partha

What kind exactly..and locations of the holes ..how are they breaking off the return siphon. Can you please elaborate. A schematic will be helpful.
Thanks & Regards..
