    Howzit Guys....

    Ive used alot of differant types of skimmers, differant sizes and differant brands. But till this day, i havent managed to get my hands on a Bubble King.

    Does anyone know who imports them or do I have to import it myself?


    Your advice will be much appreciated...:thumbup:

    skimmer advice

    Hey bra yes i can get but they are priced at a premium,if you really want the power of a true bubble king ,why not go for the size of my atb skimmer,its a ATB 300 elegance external with a 18000lt pump,its massive and skimms better than the bubble 300 i had a few years ago,if i am not mistaken the bubble king 300 is in the price range off 2500dollars and after landing it will cost you close to R20000,i will rather opt for the ATB,i had a problem on 1 of my clients tank that got a reefocto old gen skimmer 200 that skimms very well,his pump packed up,so i connected my skimmer up on his tank for a week and shhhhhhhhhhhh did it pull out protein like dark black,i cannot compare the 2 skimmers as its a world of difference,but like you always say if you can afford it buy it,thats 1 thing on my tank i will try not to sell, and its been the longest i kept a skimmer,to all that wanna buy atb , try to buy of the bigger range as the smaller skimmers work, but not as good as the bigger ones,i found with 2 of the smaller skimmers the pumps they supplied was way to big for the skimmer body,if any 1 wants to buy i will advice them on what 1 to buy for there tank

    Guys we are already importing the Vertex Alpha skimmers which are made exclusively for Vertex Aquaristik by Royal Exclusive (Bubble King).

    They are also priced better.
