Default Vertex Alpha 250 skimmer for sale

Vertex Alpha 250 skimmer for sale. The Red Dragon pump had died on this skimmer so I replaced it with a Reef Octopus DC-5500S controllable DC pump. At the time, I would have had to wait 2-3 months for a replacement Red Dragon to come from Germany and the Reef Octopus pump had very similar stats with the added bonus of being controllable. I only used the new pump on this skimmer for 2 months prior to shutting down my 225 gallon system.

Retails for $1429.95 @ J&L. Asking $800

Located in Regina but will deliver to Saskatoon, Lloydminster or Edmonton in mid March. Still have the original box so I'm willing to ship but likely won't be cheap due to size. PM if interested.

Found this gem of a picture as well. This is an example of what this skimmer is capable of doing. I was running it on ~275 gallons of water that was heavily stocked and heavily fed and it handled the bioload like a boss.

Skimmer is still for sale.

Figured I'd give this a bump as I can deliver to Edmonton this Thursday.

Sorry but there are a few interested parties and I just paid close to $350 for the replacement pump. $650 for this skimmer is already less than half price of new.

Still have this skimmer for sale $600. It's all packaged up and ready to ship in the original box. I can probably get this to Calgary for free week of the Stampede as well.
