    Let me tell you.. Bought one on Monday..

    Its probably the best and easiest skimmer Ive used to date..

    Once the skimmer water level was set it started producing foam in 5 minutes.. Since then i never needed to touch it all running 100%.

    My last 3 skimmers had to be dialed it over weeks and weeks and waterlevel always fluctuated like hell,finally something that just works!

    Without sounding totally DOF..:blush:..could someone explain to me the difference between a Skimmer for a SPS Reef and say LPS Aquarium...I had no idea that there would be a difference if you go and select a say Top Brand Skimmer for a 600L rating...I thought they were the same...pin wheel or bubble plate etc..that's new reading one that says for SPS Reef...:blush:..Good quality Skimmers are so expensive and I'm always worried of buying the wrong "type"..never knew that you also had to look at the "type" of Tank you have..:blush:

    Hi belinda

    There is no difference between the skimmers T.S.R. give all there skimmers a rating which we see has the max size SPS tank the skimmer will be capable of servicing.

    Reason being that if it is capable of keeping a prestine stocked SPS reef it is capable of keeping any of the other tank variants.

    The main things to look for when purchasing a skimmer is

    A Base and Neck diameter (gives a good idea of the amount of bubbles the skimmer was made to handle)
    B pumps Air intake per hour and Power draw (The more air in the chamber the better the skimmer will skim)
    C skimmer overall quality (is it made of quality Acrylics and does it contain quality fitting )

    The above will give you a good idea of the skimmers rating

    You will find if you look that you can get three different skimmers from different manufacturers.

    They will all have similar dimensions and pump specification but will also having very different ratings.

    Generally i would think they use SPS and those corals tend to have the highest demand for water quality so its a good bench mark :) so while it says 600L for SPS there is no difference for LPS, soft etc

    Thanks guy's...understanding it a bit better now...:blush:..the Skimmer is probably 1 of the most important purchases a person can make towards his Tank, if not the most importanr.....been picking up and storing info on Skimmers for a while as I want to get the perfect one for whatever set-up I'm looking for...the SPS rating was something new...either that or I never noticed it before...thanks for explaining...:thumbup:

I don't have allot of fishes in my tank only 3 x tangs 1x trigger Goldy firecoby 2x damsels 1 x false aggama on 1200lt. lots of sps and some lps with softy's. Will the sk3 do?

    Would these Skimmers also be at a water level of roughly 220mm..?:blush: What would the chamber diameter be to house this Skimmer...would hate to make the chamber to much of a "tight fit" and somehow restrict flow...:blush:

    Just need clarity... it is advised that a skimmer rated for twice the volume of your tank should be used ie a 300lt tank should utilise a skimmer rated for 600lt as a general rule of thumb. When going NP Pellets the general rule is 3 times ie a 300lt tank should have a skimmer rated for 900lt.

    Does the rating of the skimmers above take into consideration the doubling effect ie the SK2 is rated for a 600lt tank and not a 150lt tank perse.

    I understand that air/water ratios have come a long way on skimmer performance but it make it difficult for us noobs to make the right choice.

    For the benefit of other forum members. If I was going NP pellets on a 600 lt tank what rating skimmer should I go for based on the above skimmer?

    Hi Hammerhead

    The JNS skimmer ratings are fairly conservative so if it says 600 litres it will do 600 litres.

    The most important thing to look for when purchasing or comparing skimmers is air intake on the skimmer pump.

    If you are going the NP pellet route then you will need the SK3 Skimmer to give you that extra you need to keep up with the NP Pellets.

    Remember when using bio pellets to use the less is more principle when starting out otherwise you will end up with lots of diatoms etc

    Lastly we have some stunning pellet reactors in stock and we also do the vertex pro bio pellets.
