  • Needlewheels for under $800?

    Are there any good needlewheels out there that don't cost more then any of the tanks I'm looking at purchasing?

    I'm thinking 150-200g range. The tank I intend to run won't have more then 70gs.

    External hopefully!

    Not sure what euroreefs are going for these days, but as far as bang for the buck, they are great skimmers........

    Check them out............

      I agree with John. You can get a complete skimmer from Euro-Reef for a good price with a great impeller. Now, if you're going to buy a separate pump, then this is when they jack the price up because some people will copy the skimmer just to use the pump.

          An H&S A150 will fall below that price and handle that size tank well.

            There are ALL kinds of skimmer options for a 70g tank under 800. Frankly on a budget the turboflotor ain't all that bad with the oceanrunner pump (search around you'll find these for cheap). Not my ideal, but certainly plenty of bang for the buck. ERs, ASMs you can certainly get plenty of skimmer for under 800. As well smaller H&S and Deltecs.

              I'd second that, I have a Turboflotor 1000 HOB on my 65 gallon frag tank, cost me NZ $650.00, which would be a bit under US $500.00.
              Seems like a pretty good little skimmer to me, certainly keeps the tank clean and consistently pulls crud.
              I'm about to get a HOB Deltec for another tank, so will be interesting to compare.

                A Euroreef CS8-2 Recirculating would be a good choice for you.

                http://www.premiumaquatics.com/Merch...gory_Code=EURO

                I am using a standard CS6-1, with the gate valve mod, on my 75, and it is doing the job nicely. A CS8-2 Recirculating should be killer on your tank.

                Todd March has said that ER is switching to new pumps, that move more air. You may want to check into this before purchasing.

                    What about one of the deltec TS range, perhaps the1064(i think) I have 1250- excellent but a bit small for my tank, going for the next one up soon. Check them out.

                      If you have a little DIY in you buy an ER 5-2 and add an extension on the bottom and larger pinwheel pump. For less than $400 you get a Bubble Prince
