Reef Octopus Needlewheel Protein Skimmer 250 Gallons | eBay

Guys, what would be the downside of this skimmer? It is a needlewheel style, and it is much cheaper than other skimmers reef octopus makes rated for 250 gallons, so there has to be a reason. Does anyone have one of these? If so, have you had any issues, I may order this thing if I can verify that they work well.

It's that cheap everywhere, not just ebay. Sorry if I am with the equipment questions.

I know lots of people that swear by the octupus skimmers. I dont have one but all the people I know with big tanks use them.

I know I want to go with Reef Octopus, but they offer several different designs that are rated for a tank as large as mine. This is a very affordable model that is rated for 250, but I don't why it is so much cheap than other Reef Octopus models that are rated for the same size tank.

The tank is ahead of schedule!!! My LFS gets tank deliveries once a month, he didn't think my tank was ordered in time to catch the June delivery but apparently it was. It should be here in about 4 weeks, in the middle of June!!! A grown man should not be this excited over a new toy. lol
