Wanted TMC NEW V2 Skim 80-Micro Skimmer: Available in Canada???

Are these skimmers available in Canada, or Europe only? I'm searching online now, but any help would be appreciated.

Not sure where your located, but try giving TOM at Oakville Reef Gallery a call. He seems to be able to get his hands on anything! I am sure most of the other shops in the area could look into it too!

It may be tempting to order it straight from across the pond, but in doing so, you may need to deal with shipping costs on any warranty issues (if any occure). Buying it local will leave that to the shop to sort out.

J&L- Nope.
Mops - Nope.
ORG - Nope.

Tried them all. J&L team said not available through them. Dan from MOPS said theve got no UK suppliers. Called up Tom, he didn't know what it was nor recognize the brand, nor have any interest in procuring one for me.

Canadian suppliers seem to carry only American and Chinese made products, with almost nothing from UK manufacturers.

TMC V2 Series is a private labelled skimmer made in China .

You'll be hard pressed finding one on our shores...the market is flooded with different brands.

Very helpful.

An American company in Oregon sells the Tropical Marine Centre Skimmers. There's got to be some other companies with UK suppliers.

Now that's a good idea. I've done it before, but didn't think of it this time. Duh.

Thanks a whole bunch for the email.

Contacted TMC.

TMC said to contact their North American distributor Quality Marine (LA), for a local supplier of TMC products.

Quality Marine, replies that these skimmers are not yet arrived in North America and may not for a while. Suggested I order from UK.
