    I am looking to buy a skimmer for my system. I will be running 1200mmX450mmX45omm with 900mm sump. DT=250L Total System 350L

    I am a student and thus on a restricted budget. What skimmers would you recommend i have looked at the Reeftek/octopus T1 (R1200) and the Boyu DG - 2024 (R600) the Boyu is rated at 1850L/h.

    Ideally i don't want to spend more than R800. Anybody know anything about the Boyu DG-2524?

    Agree with Henk. Save up that extra and go for the TS1.
