Its innovative design is optimized for aquariums in the 30 to 65-gallon range.


How Can This Help My Aquarium?

A protein skimmer has many benefits to a saltwater aquarium including filtration and gas exchange. The use of a pump and a diffuser create air bubbles and foam that work to separate waste from the aquarium water and also help gas exchange which oxygenates the water. Removing waste from the aquarium is an excellent way to manage pollutants and help prevent odors, discoloration, and/or algae growth.
