Full Details

Save Space in your sump with the Skimz Piramid Internal Protein Skimmers.

Skimz Piramid Skimmers come equipped with QuietPro DC Controllable Pumps that have six preset RPM settings that let you perfectly tune the water and air flow through your skimmer for maximum performance. The controller also features a feed mode that shuts the pump down for 10 minutes. The pumps push the air mixed with your tanks saltwater through the new R14 TinyAir bubble plate that has a ratio of 1:4 course to fine holes, reducing the bubble size and turbulence. 

The Piramid skimmer collection cup is now rectangular allowing it to hold more volume of skimmate while taking up less space than a traditional round collection cup. Water exits through the micro-adjust gate valve that lets you precisely tune the water level inside the skimmer. The water level inside your skimmer is very crucial and changing the water level will alter how your skimmer performs with overall air intake and waste removal.
