Howzit everyone! I JUST completed installing our new BABY! I am really CURIOUS as to HOW EXACTLY this baby will affect our 2 metre reef tank!

I will post pics soon...... (still have to resize them)....

I will tease you all a bit - it stands about 1 metre high (well, nearly), is about 25cm in diameter, has 2 AquaBee pumps - and is an external......

Guess..... ;) ;) ;)

The last 3 pics show the skimmate production after 10 minutes.... (of switching it on)....

But, since then I have set the skimmer to skim a lot drier...... It also has a built-in outlet pipe that the skimmate can exit to a 25 litre drum.....

OK - so what do you guys think?

BTW: currently I still have the 2 x ReefTek TS2's running as well. I will most likely remove them once my BM260 is fully run-in, and then advertise them "For Sale" once I have removed and cleaned them....

looking good there Jacques....Im sure once run in you will see lots of skimate..
Hi Flappy - no - I hope not ;)

I have the skimmate exiting through a pipe attached to the cup, to a 25 litre drum standing next to the skimmer..... I will "hopefully" only have to clean the drum out once every 3 months or so ;)
