Eheim skim 350, ala ADA Vuppa
 
It looks like Eheim has come up with a bit of an alternative to the ADA Vuppa. Whether it's available in the US is another question.

Interesting...I wonder what the MSRP will be like

I wonder if the height is self-adjusting.
Pricing in Europe is 1/6-1/7 of the ADA's offering it seems.

WOW, you have no idea how excited I am about this release. I've held off on getting a Vuppa because the price is ridiculous (especially the 'titanium' version...pfft..)

If they don't release this in the US, do you think it'll be possible to import them...?

I'm sure you could find a retailer in the UK that would ship one to you.

Looks like it might be based on the pics, they show the little cloverleaf head thing moving up and down but I guess with them being weird Germans that could just indicate that with enough force and cussing it can be moved manually lol.

lol, I read the manual on Eheim's site and it does float, IIRC.

I contacted eheim to get more info about this. They are planning to release in North America in Spring 2013!!!!

(My original post was wrong. There seems to be a language barrier because most of the reps speak German and I misunderstood the spring 2013 release to be for Europe only.)

Is it automatically adjusting or manual?

you mean the surface head ? it is floating ...
so it will adjust to the water level for one inch or two ...
similar to one that attached to canister filter intake.

That's a pretty slick looking unit.

Is there a link that doesn't require registration at SFBAAPS' website?
