    Do anyone have this skimmer, and is it a good skimmer?

    I order this skimmer. Water volume is about 650L and it is rated for 1200L.:slayer:

    Hi Hermanus, I would look at the Reeftek OCTX160 as I think it is roughly the same price and is rated for 1500l, the bigger OCTX200 is also good but slightly more expensive.

    The OCTX also has a nice small footprint and I have only heard god things about the pumps.
    Good luck

    The orca is a really good skimmer..better than the ts skimmers...but hell you went for a even better one.

    The extream series is very very nice, you'll see it pull out allot of crap in the future:p

    Tank you, must say all my previous skimmers took 2-3 weeks to start skimming, this one started the moment I put it on!
    Thank you Honda and Lanzo for the advise when I ordered the skimmers,
