Bashsea, up until recently a custom acrylic company, made their first debut here at MACNA showing off their new skimmer lines and reactors. All the products in the Bashsea line are made here in the US and are build with very high quality materials. Skimmer wise Bashsea is about to release two lines, their Blu Demon Skimmers and their Twisted Skimmers. Reactor wise Bashsea is also releasing a Bioreactor, a Nitrate reactor, and a bio-media reactor which just like the skimmers appear to be very high quality.
The Blu Demon skimmers come with either a Sicce PSK 600 pulling around 700lph of air or with a Sicce PSK 1000 pulling around 1200lph of air and are rated for 150 gallons and 250 gallons respectively. Along with very fine control the Blu Demon skimmers also feature double bubble plates, one at the base, and an additional bubble plate at the skimmer cup. Expect the Blu Demon skimmers to retail for $499 and $599, respectively.
The Twisted Skimmers come with pumps not often used in high quality skimmers, Rio HP’s. The Twisted Skimmers also use a technology not often seen, featuring a Twisting (hence the name) mixing injector. The mixing injectors allow a lot more air-water contact and lower wattage pumps without compromising performance. Expect the twisted skimmers to retail from $349 and upwards rated for 300 gallon and upwards.
The first products should be available in the next couple of months. For more info be sure to check out their website.
