Well that was fast. No sooner does Reef Builders post the first images of the fabled BK Cone skimmer that we learn that the first shipment of this exciting product is already on it’s way to the states. Additionally, Reef Builders has learned that the BK Cone skimmer will be made by Royal-Exclusiv but it will be marketed by Vertex, another European aquarium product manufacturer, and it will not carry the Bubble King name. The Royal-Exclusiv made Cone Skimmer will indeed be driven by the hot-rod Red Dragon 2 pump which will include some unique controlling features to automaticaly adjust the pump’s air intake and water level, how cool is that?Â The Royal-Exclusiv Cone will be available first through Premium Aquatics and the retail price is said to be a couple benjamins less than comparable ATB models. You can count on Reef Builders to bring you the first hands on of the Royal-Exclusiv Cone Skimmer when they become available.
