    Excuse the ignorance but what skimmers are these, what are they rated for and what do they cost?

    @CameL

    Are u getting one of these?
    @Andre@ReefAquatics - Do they come for tanks up to 800-1000l? Price? Im now running a 680l predator tank, these seem to a great skimmer to have for a predator tank....

    @Breado, for a 1000L tank I would recommend the RDC1600

    Id be stressed out if the foam comes out the vent holes in the lids...do they not have a little cone deflector to push it down into the cup like the bubble magus skimmers? Or was this just and extreme case?
