The Bubble Magus QQ3 HOB Protein Skimmer was designed to deliver powerful and efficient skimming in a compact, hang-on-back design for aquariums lacking space for a traditional in-sump skimmer. The QQ3 sits right on the rim of your aquarium, so there’s no messing around with magnets or brackets to secure the skimmer to the back of your aquarium, and the minimal footprint makes it easy to tuck in the back of your aquarium without intruding on the aquascape. The collection cup and skimmer body disassemble for easy maintenance, and a foam bubble trap is included to reduce mico-bubbles escaping into the display.



  • HOB design great for sumpless aquariums
  • Easy to install and adjust
  • Reliable needle-wheel pump
  • For aquariums up to 75 gallons

Product Questions

My tank rim has a lip to hold the glass cover. It is exactly one inch from the back of rim to the end of the lip. Will this product work on my tank?

The maximum lip distance for this skimmer is 5/8" so this skimmer would not work for your application.
