    Hi there,

    So I am in the process of starting up with marines again after a long hiatis. I am going to be doing a nano tank and the skimmer I have is just way to big.. ie physical size.

    It is a Reef Octopus DNW-200-6540 (NON B). I bought this skimmer a while back when I was building my big cube. Life happened and the tank was never completed sadly.

    So this skimmer is brand new. ie never been used or even assembled. All the bits and pieces are there with nothing cracked or broken. The box as you can see is slightly tired, but that is just the exterior and is the result of it sitting in my garage for years. Skimmer is rated at 800L, if my memory serves me correctly, and can be used internally or externally.

    So reason for sale is that the skimmer is just too big for the tank / space I have available, as it will not fit under the tank. So I need to get a smaller skimmer for the new tank.

    Looking at R2500 or possibly trade for smaller skimmer.

    Pics below:

    The empty space you see in the box is where the pump goes, which i took out to take the previous photo.

    Havent worked out the physical size yet as I am working on a design at the moment, or at least hunting for a smaller tank, but in terms of skimming rate, 300L-400ish, possibly smaller. Tank size is possibly a 60cm cube or 90cm long tank. Very vauge I know.

    Cheers

    hi @Titus... I can pay 2500.00 for your skimmer if you are willing to wait few days... I'll ve getting paid in the next few days definitely before Friday the 25th. if that's ok with you then dibs... I can send a courier to collect.

    also I have a reef octopus bh-2000 hang on the back skimmer that if I get to buy yours I'll be willing to sell or swap.. its a very nice skimmer and uses otp-2000 pump with pin wheel impeller. currently using it on my 300l system and to be honest I'm very happy with it.

    pm me your number and we discuss further if you are interested..

    @HOT SAUCE , I am not in a rush so can hang on a few days if you keen on it. I need to get a tank first before I get a skimmer so that I know what space I am working with, so might contact you at some point if you still have the skimmer.

    Cheers

    @Titus just want to ask you a small favour... please you can please post a picture of the pump impeller.... whichever impeller it has won't affect our deal but I might have to order a new impeller if the one that comes with the skimmer is the old pin wheel impeller.

    It's stock, no mods. It's the needle wheel if I recall, but will snap a pic when I get a chance.
