    Passing some time as she sleeps. Dehydrated due to a virus going around. The extreme is a great skimmer dude grab it while you can.

    Hey Ridwaan, how big was the tank you used it for? how many litres? i've read it's recommended for tanks up to 600 litres.. and how much do you want for it?

    Hi Cabby...when the skimmer was first launched in the market it was rated for around 900 litres, then newer skimmers came out and the ratings of the old skimmers dropped...
    The skimmer is an internal/insump skimmer and in excellent condition.
    I bought it from someone as a backup skimmer incase one of the bigger ones give up..heheheheh

    R1800 and its yours...shipping at your expense...
