    Skimmer

    Hello Thialon

    The 9010 is the old comline skimmer while the 9210 is the new Tunze baby for a 1000l tank with a few inovative patented technologies as listed below.
    1) New Tunze Hydrofoamer silence specifically developed for protien skimmers only 12 w energy consumption.
    2) Stable base that reduces the water velocity in the lower zone of the skimmer
    3) The mixing chamber with flow distributor binds an especially high amount of organic material.
    4) Removable post filter at the outlet of the skimmer permit a perfect mechanical filter (catchcing detritus and unwanted DOC or alternativley a perfect place to add your carbon or phosphate remover etc.
    5) Nipple for Ozone connection
    6) Booster ring permits a fine adjustment of power thus giving you drier or wetter preferance.
    7) This sets this skimmer apart as it has an intrmediate chamber with phase water. This is a patented anti overfoaming system which automatically regulates the performance according to the surface tension of the aquarium water. In other words every time you clean your skimmer cup there is no fiddling around it automatically starts producing foam without any fuss or bother or fiddling. All the 9400 series are Automated.
    They are so user friendly it gives you more time for one of these :peroni: and family

    Yes the 9410 is a new model which should be released by the end of October it is really a world leader for such a small machine. the rating which is on the conservative side is 1000 litre tank. exact prices will only be made available once it has been released but I envisage if the Rand stays where it is it should be round R3800

    Sorry George please explain what u mean by "No other skimmer can do that"
    Am I missing something in the pictures or do u mean that the skimmer starts to skim immediately after cleaning?
