    I have another deal in progress so testing to see prices
    For 3 or 4 k I think I will rather keep it
    That is basically a give away price , and I don't need to sell it

    Ive had differant skimmers but the xp5000 has grunt!
    I think it pulls 2000ltrs air which is very very powerful.

    Is this the cone skinmer or the normal bubble blaster?

    I agree with ziyaadb..its a cone which is a whole differant story.
    Thats a super powerful skimmer and very difficult for other skimmers to beat IMHO....
    Keep it you dont need an upgrade...

    The one I have been offered is rated
    For double the volume , that was the reason for considering

    What skimmer is that? Do you have a tank bigger than 3000 litres? Why go bigger when what you have is perfect?

    Price on the new skimmer is a bargain and I know mine is rated for about 2000 l
    my tank volume is about 2000 so obviously a higher rated skimmer is recommended
