No problem. Keep in mind that at first on your 500g display the skimmer may not run great, just wait on it to mature and build up some dissolved organics in the tank and it will become a beast. And if you do decide to go any smaller at all then I'd switch over to the 250 instead. HTH!

Greetings, Klaus ...

Proud owner of a BK SuperMarin 300 here, and wanted to congratulate you on setting up North American distribution center in Naples, FL recently ! It's a pleasure to soon have your company Stateside

I also want to thank and generate a round of applause for Jeremy, and Premium Aquatics, for his excellent customer service and diligence in bringing Royal Exclusiv/Bubble King to our market here in the U.S.A. !

Hopefully, this will lead to increased sales and more ReefKeepers adopting the incomparable quality and performance that is Royal Exclusiv/Bubble King ! Do you know when this new venture will begin production, and will Jeremy and Premium Aquatics still have sole N.A. distributorship aside from this ?

Congrats again, Klaus, on a monumental step towards making Royal Exclusiv/Bubble King a major player in the North American market ! I know this will only lead to the production of even higher quality and more innovative products

Got pricing for these yet?
I already have a speedy pump and a Double cone 150
I also will need this flipped around return pump on the left overflow on the right is this possible to get flipped and built for my existing equipment?
Very serious inquiry

With these skimmers being more popular here in the states.... any chance of updating the skimmer specs to list US rating and not just metric stuff?

Maybe call me lazy..... but thats the biggest reason I haven't considered one of these skimmers due to not knowing what can fit

Online converters can do that for you very quickly. I would never let the metric system keep me from buying a BK Skimmer. A liter is just 5-6% more than a quart in volume. Divide liters by 4 and you will get very close to what the gallon rating is.

Personally, the metric system makes a thousand times more sense to me, however I know it's difficult using it in the US when everything else is in standard.

I'll start getting everything translated over to standard here soon.

I do not think all the specs need to be translated.... but having at least the footprint in US specs would be so much easier so we can quickly see if it fits where we need it. Having the height would also be nice to know even though these are usually on the short side so usually not a issue

I know the room I have in inches for going with a internal or external skimmer...... yea I know there are websites for doing this conversion but I doubt I am the only one who gets frustrated not seeing and US specs on these skimmers.....

I do agree though, metric is so much easier. Remember back in the 80's when there was a push to convert the states to metric numbers. Always got a good laugh out of a sign the government put up on interstate 75 just soth of Dayton Ohio. I forget the exact words but it stated for the next 25 miles we will be using Kilometers.....

I just got the BK min 160 new version.
Its all in place in the sump....... It is however humming!! Just humming, no rattle.
Is this normal? can I expect it will go away in a while after the break in?

thanks :-)

Just a update on how my BK 200 Deluxe is going.All I can say this things a beast.The gunk it pull is black,smelly and thick.Took a while to tune it in but now it's running great.Ive only used lesser quality skimmers in the past but I can see the results in a top end product.

What would you suggest for a 140 gallon with a 35/40 gallon sump? Medium to heavy bioload. I was looking at the double cone 180

It should not be humming, but what I call humming and what you call humming could be two totally different things. If you have your stand doors open and your face is right in front of the skimmer you should be able to tell it's running by a slight hum. I can guarantee that once your stand doors are shut, or you kick on other equipment on your system you should NOT hear the skimmer at all. The RD1 pumps do have a very slight / faint hum to them, the new RD3 pumps are dead silent, period.

The Double Cone 180 would be spot on for this set up and kick some serious butt! I would not suggest going up to the 8" body Double Cone 200 or SUper Marin 200, as that will be too much body and neck for your display volume with that size sump. Make sure you get the RD3 powered Double Cone 180, not the standard RD1 powered skimmer.

Looks great, I still have yet to install mine. What is the extra nozzle looking piece used for that was included with the pump. It was in it's own bag if I recall.

i have a Gen II BK Mini 200 and i was cleaning it the other day and i knocked the body over….

there is a screw that holds the adjuster pipe support to the body. do you know what the screw looks like and what the thread pitch/diameter is of the screw. that way i can find one… or do you sell them?
