These high performance hang on protein skimmers are designed for use by hanging on the rim of your fish tank.
Protein skimmers have a fairly simple design but achieve a very important task in your aquarium. Each protein skimmer comes complete with a submersible needle pump, which utilize needle-wheel technology for the finest bubbles. The surface tension from these bubbles attracts organic waste and carries it through the column; then it’s “skimmed” into a collection cup for removal.
All of our protein skimmers come with a needle wheel venturi pump included. This type of pump introduces air via the venturi air pipe and as the water is drawn through the needle wheel impeller it chops the incoming bubbles into a fine mist. Leading to a greater performance skimmer.
Please ensure skimmer outlet pipes are fully submerged for unit to run correctly. Water level must be no lower than the maximum depth from rim listed below. Suitable for sump use (as a hang-on).
