When it comes to protein skimmers, the Nyos Quantum line is not only stylish, it simply just works very well. Each skimmer includes a Hybrid Wheel which produces extremely fine micro-bubbles and made with super light materials that reduce the rotating mass keeping the pump energy efficient. The Hybrid Wheel is housed in Nyos's Clear-View Reactor volute that lets you see the bubbles being created at the source, while also allowing to you identify any foreign objects that may have entered the volute.
Once the bubbles exit the Quantum 1.0 pump, the air/water mixture is passed through the Nyos Twister bubble plate which helps increase the contact and dwell time within the body. The Twister gives the bubbles additional spin and swirls them in a vortex which greatly increases the contact time and efficiency of the skimmer. On the way up to the collection cup, bubbles are passes through the body and neck which is free of any sharp edges and will gently focus the bubbles into the collection cup to be removed. Once the collection cup is full, it can be removed in seconds with the quick twist-lock design, and even better the entire skimmer can be disassembled down to its individual components for deep cleaning and maintenance.
Every Nyos Quantum skimmer includes individual water and air quantity adjustments that let you fine-tune the skimmer for your reef system. Depending on your skimmers submersion depth, bioload, and many other factors, being able to control how much air and water is being pulled into the skimmer can yield much greater results.

Micro bubble factory By Brian on 9/13/2019Brian wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIf you like micro bubbles all through your display then this skimmer is for you. Mine worked for about a month or so and then decided to begin producing non stop micro bubbles.I have tried to dial it back in to no avail. Been through every setting. Tried different water depths. Nothing helps. I watched videos and read reviews but nothing. After 3 months I pulled it out. Worst skimmer I have ever owned. Searching for a new skimmer and Nyos is definately not on my list. Overpriced junk imho.
Great skimmer By Fishtoyou on 3/26/2019Fishtoyou would recommend this product to a friendI have this skimmer on my Red sea nano and it works great! My only reason for the four stars is because it does not have a drain on the skimmer cup. So if you aren't diligent about emptying the cup be prepared for overflow. Break-in only took a few days
