    2 skimmers yes! Older and newer one. Happy with them but I suppose one truck works better than two bakkies...in some situations...

    Body size: 6″
    Footprint: 8.3″ x 9″
    Height: 22″
    Rated for tanks 100-160 gallons
    Modified cone neck design designed for easy transition of micro bubbles into cup
    Powered by Italian made Sicce PSK-600 pump
    Air Draw: 23SCFH +
    Wattage: 30w
    2 year warranty on pump and 1 year on skimmer body
    Skimmer runs best in steady sump levels of 8″-9.5″
    The Diablo 160 XS skimmer is powered by the high performance Italian Sicce PSK-600 pinwheel pump. The skimmer comes equipped with a gate valve output to allow for precision control. The Sicce PSK600 pump has an improved star wheel impeller. The new PSK-600 are much more advanced than the previous PSK 2500 pump. Now with a digital circuit to control start up direction and speed, ultra low noise and huge air draw numbers, this pump is ready to perform with no modifications needed. The skimmers pump produces on average 23scfh of air pull using the provided pinwheel impeller. (Air results will vary depending on aquarium setup) Each Sicce pump draws less than 30watts of electricity. The collection cup has a quick release neck for easy removal for cleaning. It requires 1/2 inch of clearance to remove the cup. The Diablo XS skimmer uses metric plumbing parts.

    I will post it out here too.

    Hi.

    I had a look now again on the reseller's web and there it is clearly stated as 900L. I must say that 160 in the name makes sense that it equal 160 Gallons which is 600L.

    They are selling these for 900L tanks.

    Good question! I will have to get the box tonight and have a look. Or what is the OEM's website?

    Hi guys.

    Confirmed with the guys that is 900L according to the supplier books etc. The ES is actually rated a bit more I understand. I guess this skimmer will be more than capable for 600L then.
