View Full Version : Hi from Argentina

So I've come to the States to visit friends and family and I dont want to lose the oportunity in buying some nice equipment as in my country we dont really have all these kind of options.

Im looking for a good skimmer, I was thinking about the Reef Octopus DCS300.
Does anyone have any experience with this?

Also looking to get some lights. Im currently using DIY CREE leds but I really really like the Ecotech Radions.

My tank is 150 gallons and I mosty keep SPS.
I was also thinking about going to Vivid Aquariums, has anyone been there?
Is there anyone from Fullerton or La Mirada here?

They're are some real good stores in the OC, Socaltropicalfish in Fullerton area Tongs in Westminster and bunch in between. I have not been to Vivid I am sure you will not be disappointed You could easily spend a day and see lots of great stores. MarineDepot is in Santa Ana area and you can do a will call there and probably also Reef Geek they are in Torrance area (LA)
Not sure if you want to risk a DC skimmer pump if it breaks you will be out of luck, I would get a Bubble King skimmer Jeremy at Premium Aquatics does the C/S and does ship out of country, or you could get a SRO skimmer they are in Europe now.
When will you be in Ca?
