Has anyone seen these? They look fantastic. Almost clones of the Bubble Magus Curve skimmers. This "700" has similar specifications to the Curve 7.
Labelled as "DC Curve 700", they're obviously sneaky copies. Although it's needle wheel looks huge in comparison, and that DC 3000, DCT 3000 pump has a lot of torque, so must be able to spin a bigger wheel, produce more bubbles, pull through more water.http://www.fish-street.com/product_details.php?category_id=1&item_id=632¤cy_code=GBP
It has lots of neat design touches too, like the adjuster is connected via an acrylic rod as opposed to the hollow tube on the Bubble Magus skimmers. It has a valve on the end of the drain tube, rather than a plug. They have a gate valve to adjust the flow restriction out of the skimmer which I've never seen on a skimmer before, but it's governed by a screw thread, so is very finely adjustable and won't budge once set.
I'm not a fan of the pump controller though. I know all theses Jebao DC and DCT pumps have controllers but I think it'll just lead to huge extremes of adjustment by inexperienced users, who'll restrict the outlet using the adjuster, which will flood the cup, so they'll reduce the pump to compensate and suddenly they've got a much less powerful skimmer. I think the pump should always be on max to get the most air into the skimmer, and the adjuster is there to balance it with the height of the platform you have it on. But I've never had a skimmer with a controllable pump, so maybe it is an advancement. It's just an extra level of complication for those who already struggle to set their skimmers right.
What do you think?
