    depending on the bioload, .... a TS1 is on its limit and a TS2 is perfect..... reccommend dropping a pm to Lanzo at Dorry pets, he ships country wide

    remember guys, look at buying a bigger skimmer than what needed, because it can always be used on ur upgraded system. this hobby is very adictive, and im sure you will want to upgrade again. which means buying another skimmer. so rather but one good one, more than what you need, than buy two in the long run! just my 2c

    Do u know the pricing? Im not a big fan of Sams, ive seen prices increase on old stock by more then 200%
    Dont get me wrong, if u cant find it elsewhere sams is the place 2 go, but he seems 2 prefer making a quick buck then help the customers.

    Thats maybe his special price. I know a TS1 should be around R1200 and a TS2 about R1600.

    The skimmers were on special, they were new but only had one of each and like i said I cant confirm those prices but i was waiting in the shop for a while before i was helped and i'm pretty sure those were the prices.
