    Hi Suhayl -

    Just as some more information for you - the beckett style skimmers are extremely scarce. As far as I know, people will only have this, if specially imported for them. So, I really hope that you get this item that you require, but, IF you do, it might be reasonably expensive.

    Good luck in your quest.

    Hi Mille! How does the beckitt skimmers differ in pricing? Far more than the standard down-draught/venturi skimmers?

    Bekkett skimmer

    thanks guys for your great input. Reef Inmates has one but a bit out of my budget right now. They are kick ass skimmers and when i have enough money I will get me one.

    Yes they are powerful skimmers, But their electricity consumption does concern me. They are not cheap to run, and with the current electricity crisis and rationing of power, I would not recommend these skimmers. Once eskom is up and running again, by all means.
