    I will try get a pic to you tonight. The skimmer is around 8 months old. It has a spare mesh wheel impeller and the original box, still in perfect condition. It is properly rated for 700 liters as some sites have it rated for 1500 liters. It has an energy efficient pump and bubble plate. It is a cone design. Here are some pics from the web.

    Here's a link to the suppliers web page. It really is a great skimmer and kept my 250L tank perfect with over 30 fish (0 nitrates and phosphates). Pulled a full cup a thick stuff every 2-3 days.
