    I went to VIP the other day and they were unloading a whole lot of new toys from a company called Dymax. The lighting range is brilliant from full pendants with built in timers so you don't have to have a thousand timers on a multiplug. They have one hooked up to their display tank and the lighting is brilliants.

    There are also clip on halides in 150 and 250 watts for nanos.

    They have a full range of skimmers for nanos up to 8000 litre beasts. NOt sure on the performance of those but they look good.

    There are a whole lot of other things including a stunning pico tank of about 20 litres which looks like a mini Jebo with a clip on LED light for about 700 bucks.

    All the stuff is reasonably prices compared to other brands out there

    So Guys,

    Have any of you actually used these products. They come in a lot cheaper than the Reef Octopus/Aqua Medic equivalents. So I am tempted.

    Would love to get someone's opinion on these products.

    For their lighting and electronics (Ph meter etc.) I would go with Dymax. As for skimmers you might as well go for boyu.
