This budget-friendly skimmer is far from low quality. The Sicce powered skimmer has a custom pump that was designed for Somatic skimmers pulls in tons of air and water making a perfect mixture for skimming, while the integrated wedge-pipe silencer assembly keeps the skimmer super quiet.
Designed for use with the Somatic 90 Filtration System.
Many protein skimmers can be twice the price but only have half the features. Somatic has created a full feature skimmer at a quarter of the price as traditional skimmers, and will not leave you disappointed. Many of the little features that are only found on high-end skimmers are incorporated into the 90S Space Saving Skimmer. From laser engraved markings on the wedge pipe to polished and fully welded seams all around. The integrated silencer sits in the top of the wedge pipe keeping it protected and out of your way for maintenance around the sump area. The silencer also has a nipple that can be connected to CO2 Scrubbers or other accessories.
The custom Sicce pump was specifically designed for Somatic skimmers, to their specifications. The pumps impeller and venturi design pull in copious amounts of water and air, mixing them together and pushing them up towards the dispersion bubble plate. The bubble plate considerably reduces turbulence while the wine body shape of the skimmer helps remove any further disturbance of bubbles directing them up into the neck and making a seamless transition into the collection cup producing high-quality skimmate.

Just Buy By Scott on 6/7/2018Scott would recommend this product to a friendHaving owned many name brand Skimmers, I thought I would give a new company a try. With Somatic being affiliated with Vertex, I felt it would be good deal. Superb fit and finish with minimalistic appeal. Assembled in 3 minutes. High quality o rings everywhere which makes assembly and cleaning easy. Instant foam head and very quiet. 7 inch wine bottle shape is sexy and functional. No micro bubbles produced, period! This moves a lot air/water for this price category. Skimmate is awesome. Vertex quality and function for half the price. Most bang for the buck!!
Somatic Protein Skimmer 90 By Noel on 5/31/2018Noel would recommend this product to a friendThis skimmer is fantastic ! My tank has not been this clear in a long time. My corals are showing noticeable growth and polyp extension.
Great Skimmer Better Price By Richard R on 5/2/2018Richard R would recommend this product to a friendWhat a skimmers.... this thing is awesome... used the Somatic 90 to replace a skimmer in my 125 gallon tank. The somatic works soooo much better than my last skimmer. The somatic took out in one day what the other skimmer took out in a week. My tank was dirty with the old skimmer!!! I should have replaced it sooner. The somatic was cheaper and works better
