    Hi guys,
    Does anybody have experience with this brand of skimmer? Its seems to be really cheap compared to the usual brands? Skimmer for a 1200L tank would set you back about R2000 brand new. Its almost impossible to find a skimmer of that size SECONDHAND for that price that's in some decent condition.

    I had one, replaced it pretty quick with a more expensive one (so ended up paying more). Remember, penny wise, pound foolish. Rather get a decent skimmer. There are some good ones that come up for sale in here, just give it some time.

    I had a small internal one for a quarantine tank. Not impressive at all.

    I had an LS20 and was less than impressed and ended up replacing it very soon after buying it.

    That's what I thought. Couldn't find anything on the net that's actually worth something about them. So that almost made up my mind, but now you guys just confirmed my doubts.
