    Ok Gang. What we want to do is get as many Skimmers as we possibly can compiled together, so that we can get a Database put together for all who are looking for Skimmer information. This is where I need all Members input here. What we are looking for is the following. After we get it all together here, we will trim up whats needed and put that information, with your names attached into the Databse.
    We need, in this order:
    Manufacturer name of Skimmer
    A Picture of the Skimmer
    Dimensions
    Foot Print Dimensions
    Manufacturer name of Pump and its GPH and watts
    L/H Air Intake
    Impeller type (Mesh, Needle etc.)
    If it has a Recirc Pump, what type.
    Tank Size Rating

    Thanks to all in advance for your help on this

    Here's the one I have been using for the 14 months. Not one of the most expensive ones, but does a great job at pulling junk out of the water.

    Here's my Reef Octopus BH-1000.
    [​IMG]

    The BH-1000 is a unique design HOB skimmer in that the pump is mounted external and under the actual skimmer body allowing for much less room needed behind the aquarium. Also by placing the pump outside the skimmer and the aquarium there is no heat exchanged to the water. This design also allows for easy removal of the pump for cleaning and maintenance. The Reef Octopus® skimmers are powered by the Hailea OTP pumps. They are built with high quality acrylic. The Octopus skimmers uses metric plumbing parts. The pump has an improved venturi design and pinwheel impeller.
