    @Salie: Check my tank post under large tanks. I was upgrading to this skimmer, for my tank, but then realized that it didnt fit in my sump.

    I was actually gona keep it for any future tanks, as its a give away at this price, but it takes up too much space even in the house. And i dont wanna risk it breaking in storage. its a fantastic skimmer

    can i just say that this skimmer is extreemy underated and has been shoved aside due to "newer" skimmers...

    i know a few guys using them and they perform beautifully without any modifications!

    on a smaller system (5ft to 800lt) this is all you will need,,

    Eish ok. Too big for my little sump. I think that I will just try and get two impellers for my external Bubble Magus rather!

    Ah - OK - thanks Les. Let me see what they will charge me for TWO pin-wheel impellers for my Aquamedic pumps that I have on my Bubble Magus skimmer. If this compares with this skimmer in total - I will make Marine101 an offer!

    hehe, yeah, i was also dissapointed wen this thing didnt fit in my sump or cabinet. Was even thinking of drilling through the wall, to put it in the next door room:eek:

    But yeah, in the picture it looks tiny, thats why i put the coke can for reference, this thing is huge!
