Question Anyone receive their Xtreme skimmer?

Have any of you received your Xtreme skimmer from Marine Solutions yet? I wonder how much longer we're gonna have to wait?

Their website says that the Extremes are still in transit.

Theyre stuck in customs would be my guess.... Sometimes that can take awhile....

I just ordered - have they billed our credit cards before shipping? I don't know that I'd let it go past 30 days if so...

I really need to have my live rock into my tank sometime the week of the 7th (my vacation week) - which means I really need a skimmer by then.

When I heard last week that they were held up in customs, I figured it'd be a wait. Unfortunately if they don't have anything more to tell me by the end of this coming week, I'm probably going to have to cancel my order and pick a different skimmer.

It's already held up my project quite a bit, and my wife's patience is running REALLY thin with our dining area being consumed by this build. Even if I had the place spotless and was just waiting for the skimmer, she'd go ballistic knowing that my choice to go with the latest and (hopefully) greatest is giving a longer wait before we can get something into it.

I paid with paypal and got an email confirming the purchase....so yes, they have billed the card already. I know that it will take some time in customs, but it would be nice to hear from MS about the status.

What kind of skimmer are you going to get if you ABSOLUTELY need to have it by next week... Personally I think you'll end up kicking yourself if you pass up on the prices of these skimmers and they perform like we're all hoping/expecting. Youre not going to get near the same amount of skimmer for your money IMO.

Put your display together and start cycling everything without the skimmer... then when it comes in just throw it into the sump.

I talked to the owner yesterday. They are 30 miles away from their warehouse at a transit trucking dock. I would imagine that even after they recieve them, there will be a pretty long (1-2 wk) gap before they ship them. No one there has ever even seen one in person. The don't even know what the footprints are. He mentioned something about modding them also before shipping. I have no idea what this meant...

I would take this into consideration before ordering this skimmer, regardless of price.

daytonreefRob,

Can you comment on what the 'modding' comment might be referring to?
