Akula UKS-180 Protein Skimmer
If true craftsmanship and build quality are your top priorities when selecting a protein skimmer for your aquarium, you can’t do better than an Ultra Reef. The moment you hold an Ultra Reef Skimmer in your hands, you know you’re holding something of lasting quality and performance. Akula skimmers were built to be compact and quiet, utilizing an internal Sicce PSK skimmer pump, but they cut no corners and every component is well thought out and precisely machined from premium materials.
The unique threaded outlet body allows for extremely precise and reliable tuning, and the silencer keeps air draw noise to an absolute minimum. All components can be disassembled for thorough cleaning, while the needle wheel pump can be accessed by removing the titanium locking screws on the conical chamber. The skimmer also has an innovative Easy Flip seal, which allows for the easy removal of components for maintenance.

Quality craftsmanship down to the screws
