    Hi guys!

    Am still getting into this hobby and am currently waiting for my tank. Should hopefully be ready soon and I will then start a dedicated thread.

    Just want to know if anyone has had experience with this skimmer? I can't seem to find too much info on the internet. I was originally quoted on a Reef Octopus NW-200 but this skimmer is unfortunately not in stock and this Reeftek SC2 has been suggested as the alternative. My tank will be about 400L so both these skimmers are rated for systems one up from mine (so to speak).

    Thanks in advance!

    Rob

    they are rated for a 1000L system. More than big enough for your system.

    Only issue I have with them is their relatively low outlet. I like a deep sump water level. So for me, I will put it on a little stand to have it higher. Depending on the space available.

    Thanks @RiaanP! :m106: So if I could find an appropriate stand there should be no issues with this skimmer?

    What is the wattage consumption on the skimmer pump?

    It uses an ES-2500S pump... So I am assuming about 25/30? But I am not 100% sure...
