    If there are any suggestions on mods or bragging pics of your Reeftek this is the place for them. Any questions relating to this skimmer can be asked here.

    ive got my ts1 on my 200l cube.found the best way to get it to perform was to raise the skimmer at this level.

    Neither Mekaeel. It was only the King 3 pumps that where replaced as they were the only ones that had a once off problem. They were replaced with OTP 2000 pumps. Cool

    You guys think it's worth trying to mad the TS1 to be mesh wheel?

    The mesh wheel mod works very well. The mesh wheel is what the BM comes out with standard and Bubble King are now changing over.

    Yes they do but I think Sims wants to do a mesh wheel mod. It's different to needlewheel. Don't have pics handy right now but there is a thread about it on here.
