    Except for the clear downdraft tubes looks juts like my ETSS 2500 .. We are going to put that on the new system at the shop once the grow out trough's arrive and get the two new pumps on line..The ETSS 2500 was or is a great skimmer But this one looks just like it to me..I have the old 3000 in the Richmond shop.

    Does the ETSS have an Air Flow Meter?

    Are we talking Air Flow meter? or water flow meter?
    I was talking about air flow.

    how do you think about DD skimmers ?..
    a foaminator can be a good choice for a 350g reef tank with a good bio-load (many fish and sps/lps)..

    or there should be a better choice to manage a so made DSB tank ?..

    i was thinking about to buy this or an ETSS version as i love them.. but in europe they never arrived.. so no review on them
