    Volcano skimmer

    Just thought this was a cool vid. Seems like an amazing skimmer. Wonder what it's worth. The tank of the month on RC has one of these and he raves about it. says it blows his old Deltec 902 away. Has some really cool features too.

    Re: Volcano skimmer

    I'm a huge fan of Spaz's skimmers.
    I've been a subscriber to the Volcano thread on RC for a while. These have features normally seen on RK2's combined with the leading edge tech of the Bubblemasters and bubble kings.

    Re: Volcano skimmer

    HHMM? no prices. I would be interested to see a price, their web site says custom made skimmers. In my experience custom made= premium dollar. I would bet you could buy 2 bubblekings for the price of one of these.
