    Hey,

    Quite intersted in this skimmer, I just can't find info on how much air it pulls per hour? I recall the Eheim 1250 being 1200 ltrs/hour...
    What size is your tank and how heavily stocked was it?
    Little worried about the price, also once I have added postage to JHB.

    Thanks;)

    @coralline the 1260 pulls 900lph air that skimmer body is too small for that amount air so i would assume it pulls around 600lph air

    Hey @coralline I was running a 300l system & had more coral than fish so never had a huge bio load but did feed fairly well so the skimmer was working hard & did a leka job.
    The price is not too bad for that skimmer as I bought it almost double for what I'm asking for but I'm sure we could work on a price with shipping it up to jozi. Will look around for good shipping prices & get back to you ok.;)

    I think that's about right.

    Any luck checking postage costs and consideration around a special price:p?
    Thanks

    Hey @coralline sorry to get back to you so late I've been busy at the sea shepard volunteer center. I went to the post office & it would cost R142.80 incl. Insusance to send the skimmer to jozi, min 5 days & max 6 days to get there. The price stays the same but just incl. the postage so it's still R2500 which is still a good price for the skimmer.
    Thanks Michael

    Guys - just a reminder to disconnect the pump when shipping and bubble wrap separately. The weight of the pump will break the skimmer body if it is connected.
