I just ordered one of these off Ebay. I checked Bigalspets.ca but they did not have it. They did however have it on bigalspets.com (the US site). I tried to order but it told me it could not ship to me in Canada. So I went to Ebay. It's a $30 US item, but because of nonsense customs fees and shipping charges I'm out $60 US for this item.
I think it's a really need take on a surface skimmer. We all get that oily protein slick on the surface of our tanks. It can be broken up with an airstone or sucked out with a surface skimmer attachment for your canister or HOB.
What's different about the Eheim Skim 350 is that the head (where the water is sucked in) floats. It can travel a couple of inches up and down. That means that as you inevitably suffer from evaporation between water changes, and your water level drops an inch or two, this thing will keep doing it's job. Other surface skimmers can't say that.
The tank is in a bedroom so a loud airpump was out of the question. I think this product is really neat. Apparently it's not available in Canada. Anybody have any thoughts?
