    Eish, I was thinking about R1500 for a second hand. I have got bees now, cause I know I need a bigger skimmer, I don't want a scrubber, everthing is fine at the mo, but if I add anymore fish, there will be too much of a bio load. Even an in sump, but then there is no room under the tank and DSB.

    Magman - I bought the Bubble Magus skimmer (external). I was REALLY REALLY amazed and impressed with this skimmer's performance. Even I ran into a bit of crap with the impellers - this skimmer is really amazing.

    I am not sure how this skimmer's price compares to ie. the ReefOctopus DNW external skimmer range, or perhaps the EXTREME range of the ReefOctopus.

    But, I paid R5k, and believe me - it was really worth it..........
