I didn't see the price tag. It only has one needle pump (as far as the picture showed) so I don't know why it should be so high. The pumps alone are about $100 each. There are a lot of good skimmers on the market. I would ask some more forum members. If you have room, just buy one that is rated a little larger than what you think you need.

Yeah the price is what stopped me last night lol. Im looking for an external skimmer (not too concerned about footprint) that requires infrequent adjusting and skimms like a beast. I also want it to be usable if I upgrade size. Hence such a large one on only a 125 DT that is pretty stocked.

The Octopus skimmers BRS sells all look nice to me. Our LFS is a BRS reseller, so he has several models In stock. They look well made.

I think the JNS SK7 will skim circles around that reeflo skimmer, for less money.
