OK, so what skimmer do you guys suggest for my new setup? It will be about 750 litres sump included. Let the debate begin...
And please, mention names and model numbers :)

Another Q: Direct feed into skimmer suction or into chamber where skimmer is?

How about a skimmer poll mods? Give a lot skimmer names and let the reefers vote their choice ;)
If there is something like that, where can I have a look? My previous skimmer was a Reeftek TS2 on a 300litre system - was very happy with it, but there must be some real competition for it out there...

Tobes - the ReefOctopus DNW-200 is rated for 1750 litres as far as I know.
BUT - look at the new TS3/4 as well as the Bubble Magus skimmers as well.... IMarine had a thread about them..... Perhaps worth looking at, as they are Bubble Master/King clones....

I'm always skeptic/paranoid about copies/clones of something cause usually they're not as good as the original. I'll rather opt for the TS3/TS4 in this case. Thanks Jacques ;)

Thanks Warr, pitty they only show a pic of the DNW400. So it works the same as the TS2 that I had internal/submerged?

Hi Tobes, Dorry Pets have a special on the DNW150 for R1900 (R700 off the main price) if you going this route.
However, i would speak to Floh at Ecoaquatics as he has been helping me and their prices are very competitive and their service excellent.
So would rather go that route - am sure he can make a good recommendation and offer a good price.

The 150 is too small, I want bigger ;)

I'll talk to Floh and Andrew, I know they give excellent service - been dealing with them for nearly a year now :thumbup:
Will ask if they do the DNW range :)
