  1. Vertex Stands

    I think one of them I did was around $600 and the other was $900 and change. 24 x 24 x 36 and I think the other was 48 x 12 x 36. I was working on these like over 2 years ago and then I saw the Vertex one and figured they beat me to market and would offer them at a lower cost. but yeah it seems like they may not do them after all. Who knows!
  2. Vertex Stands

    I did one of these last year for a client and the cost is very high with 80/20. Most wouldn't want to spend that on a stand. For those that don't mind spending the money I can make them custom. 80/20 doesn't offer a snap in for the panels like in the video but i have my version that I machine in house. For those that wish to DIY with 80/20 you could probably use velcro to do the same thing. Check out the garage sale for 80/20 on ebay also for good deals. I am currently working with a company outside the US to offer aluminum framed stands for the upcoming PicO series.

  5. PicO SkiM 2.0 back in stock ready to ship!

    Yes they all did get shipped yesterday. Big thanks to the back ordered customers for waiting the additional week while I was out with the new baby.
  6. Another batch in stock and ready to ship! IT'S BACK... Back by popular demand. The PicO SkiM 2.0 It was good before and now it's even better! The PicO SkiM 2.0 micro skimmer is perfect for any rimless pico or nano aquarium 15 gallons or less. In smaller aquariums heat and salinity swing are more dynamic then in larger systems. The PicO skim works to alleviate major swings by using tried and true limewood airstones. The benifit to using this system in your smaller aquarium is the ability not only fine tune the unit to produce a very dry skimmate but the complete lack of additional heat being introduced to your small volume of water. Keeping your collected skimmate more dry will leave less water drawn out of your system that is being replaced by top off water thus keeping your salinity levels in check. Other skimmers use impeller driven pumps to produce bubbles. The PicO SkiM uses limewood air driven bubble production. This means very fine bubbles and no additional heat added to the system by internal pumps. While this method of skimming may not work as well for larger aquariums it works perfect in many ways for our smaller systems. Specifications: Height - 9" Width - 3" Total depth - 3.75" In tank depth - 2.5" Included: PicO Skim 2.0 3ft of 1/2" black vinyl drain hose air adjustment tube Premium limewood airstone Features: Small in size Runs in as little as 4" of water No heat transfer from pump Finest bubbles Less salinity swing Hidden collection cup Easy fine tuning Requirements: 20 gallon rated or better air pump 1/4" air line Pre-Order HERE Setup Guide HERE
