    Photo's and description/list of items for sale:Notes:
    Mods: Can you help with the pic, again I can't see how to link the pic as there is no IMG icon,,,,,


    Rated as one of the best skimmers one can buy! Vertex Alpha 170, this skimmer is rated to 200 UK Gal - +- 900L

    It's 5 months old, the neck cleaner is 3 months old.

    It's still in my sump so there is only that one pic I could get of it. The product website is here

    Has a RED DRAGON pump which is known as the top pumps one can get. It's super silent (prob the most silent bit of equipment in my tank).

    Has a Ozone plug so you dont have to fiddle with the skimmer pump.

    The build quality on these skimmers are phenominal!

    The once off price including the neck cleaner: R6000 - Skimmer and neck cleaner are basically new.

    NOTE: My new skimmer only arrives on the 8th of March, so the lucky owner of this skimmer can wait till pay day on Feb, pick up or shipping will only commence on the 8th of March 2013.

    All of that will have to wait a couple of months. I'll rephrase:

    I will never fit that monster in my budget :/

    Hi no the lid is the skimmer cup cleaner lid. I'm sorry but the skimmer has to go as a unit.
