    Hi I'm looking at buying a Reeftek TS1 for the 250l system and I was wondering if it would adequetly do the job or should I get a bigger skimmer.

    I used a TS1 on my 4ft for quite awhile without any problems..... Good skimmate, etc...

    Only changed to a TS2 cause I got one at a good price....:thumbup:

    IMO Reef octopus change the ratings on the older skimmers to make the new more expensive ones more attractive.
