    Cool! Many thanks Nakoma for this link. I am sure it will definitely be helpful to some reefers. This DIY skimmer looks REALLY professionally built.

    Also IMarine - many thanks for doing a costing for us. It will be really interesting how much this DIY skimmer would cost - compared to e.g. a ReefTek or ReefOctopus.
    Also, I wonder how this would skim in comparison?
