Skimz SM167 Monzter Protein Skimmer

The SM series of protein skimmers are ideal for tanks that do not have a lot of space in the sump available. The SM167 has a tiny footprint with a space saving pump design that keeps everything very compact. The new output valve design allows for more control over the water level inside of the protein skimmer compared to previous models. The Skimz SM167 the perfect protein skimmer aquariums from 50 up to 200 gallons and gives you high performance skimming at a great value. 


BRS Recommended for tanks up to:

  • Heavy Bioload (Most Common) - 120 gallons
  • Medium Bioload - 150 gallons
  • Light Bioload - 200 gallons


Updated QPS4.0 DC Controllable Pump

All Skimz SM167 skimmers now come with the updated QPS4.0 controllable DC powered pump. QuietPro skimmer pumps include a LED display controller that allows you to fully control the flow through the pump into the skimmer body. There are multiple different speed settings and a feed mode that will turn the skimmer off for 10 minutes when it is activated. Having the ability to control the flow through your skimmer allows you to tune the protein skimmer for your tanks requirements correctly. The new QuietPro pumps also feature a soft-start program that slowly ramps up to the desired speed over the course of a few seconds.  Adjustable QuietPro QPS4.0 pump is housed within the skimmer body resulting in a compact design that fits in most sumps.

Product Questions

Will this skimmer fit in the skimmer section of a Trigger 20 cube, how about the crystal 18?
Question by: David Williams on Dec 21, 2017, 8:31 AM
Thanks for reaching out to BRS!

The Skims SM167 skimmer has a footprint of 8.75"x8.75". All four of the Trigger Systems cube sumps will have enough room to accommodate this skimmer. Skimmer/Drain dimensions are as follows:
Crystal: 10.8"x11"
Ruby: 11.6"x12"
Emerald/Sapphire: 11.6"x9"

Have a great day

What line of the skims dc skimmers would be good for my 60 gallon cube that will evenly have a large bio load.
Question by: Eric on Nov 24, 2017, 7:09 AM
For a 60g aquarium, the SM160 series is a good choice, or even the Vertex Omega 150. The SM167 is a great skimmer that runs very quiet and skims wonderfully.
Answer by: Charlie on Nov 24, 2017, 8:20 AM
Would this be to much for a 60 gallon cube and 10g sump medium-heavy load
Question by: Erick Moreno on Nov 19, 2017, 1:03 PM
This would be a great skimmer for a 70g system. It should allow you to go with a fairly heavy bioload too.
Answer by: Charlie on Nov 20, 2017, 2:08 PM
While this skimmer will fall on the larger end for a system of that size, you should have no issues. Just bear in mind that with an upsized skimmer, production of skim may be more intermittent, unless you tune for wetter skimming.

Have a great day!
