    guys i am looking for a RS2 skimmer second hand, does anyone have one lying around that they want to part with? i would preferably like something to service 2000-2500 litres and be able to fit below the tank...

    well it's rated for a 2500l system, quite cheap for what you get and I have one that works quite well. Don'y know why you want to go Rec. it's oftem more expensive and I fould it more of a pain than an internal one. I ran a DNW200 for a while will not go back to external...

    Well guess you got no option then. From my experience with the DNW 200 on my old setup, it helped in keeping my SPS thriving by assisting in nutrient export.
    I use to get half a cup of dark coffe brown skimmate every 2 days.
