    nope doesnt seem so, i think we uitalise more reefocto, aquamedic, deltec and tunze.

    dymax looks too much like boyu/ macro aqua to me. :)

    A Friend of mine has one of these. Not a bad skimmer one you have it dialed in. But it's not a tunze or a Reeftek.

    I have one of the mini skimmers.....it works like I expected a cheap skimmer to work.....a few mods and it works a little better, but I guess you cant expect to much from it?

    My reeftech works like a bomb in my 250l tank. Creates seriously nice small bubbles in the chamber that enables it to catch and lift all the necessary rubbish. If the bubbles are too large you can miss some of the other stuff and never expel it in the colleciton cup.
