Skimmers (BYOP) + PM Waste Collectors


Recommended Posts

Bring Your Own Pump!!!

Three awesome skimmer bodies for sale, without pumps. Also a neat little hang on and extra waste collector.

Just pair with your favorite needle wheel + venturi enabled pump and start removing those pesky organics.

Precision Marine Redline 225 - $80


Precision Marine ES100 with WC-410- $100

The body on this has been repaired with acrylic weldon. Was running 3 weeks ago just fine. 


Precision Marine WC610 waste collector - seems brand new. -$60


No name "DC-212" -$60

Looks like a bubble magus or seaside aquatics clone. 



Aqua Clear Aquatics -hang on back- $15

Cute little guy. Seems to be missing a small screw or clamp to hold upright. Should be able to rig something yourself, but I Might find by the time it's sold. 


Georgetown nights and weekends. Arboretum area during the weekday.

OBO, combo deals between my sale threads.

Decided to play around with the cone skimmer a bit.

From looking at the "instructions" I figured out that it is supposed to use a DC4000 pump similar to the Jebao. ( Also found a similar model but with black trim, available in Turkey from a website that sells these things for around $375USD, about same price as they sell a reef octopus 200int) https://www.marineakvaryum.net/Reef-Royal-DC-212-Protein-Skimmer,PR-14016.html

Since I have a few Jebao pumps sitting around, I ordered a 3D printed needle/meshwheel impeller + adjustable volute venturi intake for the DC8000 I have.

Here is the skimmer after 4 days in the tub with no fish, just rocks. The pump is hooked up all janky since I was just testing it, but is only turned up around 30% power.

This thing can be a beast when paired with the right pump. If you look around online you can find a DC4000 type pump with needlewheel. Or I will sell this beast if someone wants.


Enticing? Who wants it?
