I asked a vendor about the size of the 250, if I could squeeze it into 19x16 chamber of my Elos sump but never heard back. It looks like the 200 would. Hmm .... so many great skimmers, only one tank.



Go to www.aquariumspecialty.com - that info is already listed. IIRC it is about $1,500 or something like that.

----------

Bubble King Supermarin 200 Internal
[BKSM200I]
$1,499.00

Bubble King Supermarin 200 Internal Skimmer

Currently Not in stock. Available in mid to late February. More data to come soon.

Notice that the pump can be mounted on 2 sides for better sump placement.

35 Watts
3000 L/HR Water

That may be a typo on the rating so I removed it from the site until we get the precise aquarium rating for the SM200. The other specs are correct. By the way the SM200's skimmers will be here next week.

Klaus, want is the size rating for the Supermarin 200?

Thank you,

Is it true that the BK SM 200 pulls 1500 L/H of air, and the BK 250 Int pulls 1000 L/H?

Are the SM 200's available yet?

What are the dimensions of the collection cup? height and diameter?

Actually the BK 250 Internal is rated at 2000 LI/H water and 1300 L/H air. We should have the Bubble King 200 Supermarin's in stock next week.

Thank you,

That's right. I mis-typed. I meant to ask if the BK250 Int pulls 1500 L/H.

It's quite interesting that the SM 200 pulls the same air as the BK250.

AquariumSpecialty/Klaus - is there a reason the smaller SM pulls the same air as the BK250 at a lower price point?

Klaus - thanks for the collection cup height. What is its diamter?

Where does the SM line fall into place? My guess is the MINI is the entry level, then the SM, then the Deluxe?

I'll step aside and let Klaus answer these questions. After all, he makes them.

@tbone28

the Supermariens are anouther Design and not comporable with the Deluxe modells. The Deluxe are make better dark skimmate and have more adjustable Points....
The diameter :

BK-SM 200 = 200 mm
BK-SM 250 = 250 mm

regards.. Klaus

Re: Bubble King Supermarines 200 internal






Do the bubbles look big to anyone else?

the skimmer is running in an testtank, without bioload... no Fishes inside the tank. So the bubbles are look different...

Hi Klaus

Thanks for once again making a "state of the art skimmer"
How do you measure the effectives of your skimmers?
Do you only measure the l/h of air and power consumption or do you also measure the amount of protein/hour extracted in the skimmate for a given flow rate and protein content in the water?

Vidar

@elfa...

we measure the effectives of BK skimmers :
> airflow..
> waterflow..
> loudness..
> energyconsuption...
> litte turbulences...
> adjustment of the skimmer..
> workmanship...
> comparsion wth my Competitors...
> longlife Skimmerpumps...
> and the most important Point : .... electrical loading by the needle wheels...
the last Point is the most important Point...

regards... Klaus

Sweet! Please post pics when you've got it running! What made you go with the 200 over the 250? I have a 250 coming for my 180g.

I plan to start a new thread once I get mine in: "BK Supermarine Skimmer club"

The skimmer was V day present from my wife and she really researched it. My tank is a 190g and from everyone she talked to including Klaus and the N american distributors on the phone, the 200 was best for my tank. They really discouraged purchasing a BK that is too large for my tank.


BTW, that is a Porterhouse steak in your avatar, not a T-bone.

guilty as charged, mr. criminal defense attorney

You have a very nice wife, who is willing to do that kind of research! I also have heard that oversizing a BK skimmer is bad, but I've heard just as many positive stories as well. I hope mine turns out OK.
