Next generation of skimmers have arrived

We are pleased to be able to show you the very first photos of the new Fauna Marin skimmers.

The New FM skimmers are 100% serviceable, all parts are removable for cleaning, we beleive this to be a first at such serviceability.

The skimmers are powered by Aqua Bee pumps (No Chinese rubbish here) fitted with modified mesh wheels, but a series of different wheel styles will be available for people to choose what they prefer the most.

The skimemr body is manufactured using 100% German produced acrylic and of course the units made in Germany also. Claude has gone to great lengths to distance this new skimmer from anything "Chinese".

The skimmer has been designed to be very simple in set up and produce a very constant foam production.

One early reviewer wrote

"[I]the skimmer is now up and running early results are very promising and being able to completely strip the skimmer down is a god send and it was very easy to set up too,i had my doubts when i see the foam impeller but the air it produces is very fine and the air though the diffuser plate is incredible smooth with very little turbulence within he skimmer body, this is a prototype i believe, as is the impeller design for me to try ,but my early thought are that this back to basics skimmer with minimal turbulence and long contact time will perform extremely well[/I]"

Supply - Initially these will be sold to a number of users in North America directly through Aqua Digital Inc with teh expectation of published reviews. After 6 months the units will then be distributed across our growing dealer network. You will be able to purchase at the reviewer price on [url]www.faunamarindirect.com[/url] no sooner than the end of January.

Prices yet to be announced although some blog sites are already trying to (wrongly) guess.
