    Hi there, I will have a Reef Octopus BH-2000 skimmer available mid Nov.
    Perfect working condition, 8 months old. Also 2 SICCE voyager V2 pumps with controller.

    Salaam gambit, remember I told you I have the BH1000, now this BH2000 is perfect for you, nice skimmer.

    lets just make sure it fits nicely in the space you have on the cupboard side, if its a nice fit, then this skimmer is THE ONE

    Yes pending price yes, not really Bollie, you will not see it, Gambit is building a canopy that will cover all this.

    Gambit lets chat when we meet this weekend, PERHAPS SUMP IS THE BEST WAY TO GO RATHER

    I'm in the same boat , I bought mine as a backup in case something happened to my main skimmer so in no rush to move it
