- X-120 AXIUM Space Saving G4 Protein Skimmer - Eshopps (DISCONTINUED)
Eshopps mid-level line of Axium skimmers keeps upping the bar on simplicity and performance. The internal pump design allows for a smaller footprint and using powerful Sicce pumps means there is no loss of performance. The skimmer body of the new 4th generation has been completely redesigned with a new water level adjustment, silencer, quick release pump lock, and clear venturi, making it perform better and maintenance easier.
Easly, one of the best things about Eshopps Axium skimmers is the clear venturi. A clogged venturi will cause nothing but issues with protein skimmers and have the ability to see the air to water mixture and any calcium or other mineral build up is essential. You will now know when to clean you venturi, helping prevent problems from forming.
Adjustable Water Level Baffle
Keep your skimmer running perfectly with Eshopps new water level baffle. The gate style baffle lets you precisely tune your skimmers internal water level for optimum performance. The twist handle moves very smooth and gives you excellent control over the water inside of the reaction chamber.
Water & Air Adjustable Silencer
Get the perfect mixture of water and air in your skimmer. Eshopps custom silencer keeps ambient noise to an almost dead silent level while giving you extra control over the mixture. Since every reef is different, you can tune the skimmer to the needs of your aquarium.
Powerful Sicce SE200 Pump
Many skimmers utilize Sicce to produce their needle wheel skimmer pumps, and that is an easy answer why, they simply work! It is hard to find a skimmer pump that will outperform Sicce for the money.

Great Skimmer By Brett on 12/27/2019Brett would recommend this product to a friendFor the footprint size of this skimmer, and price you can’t beat it.
Great skimmer By Thomas on 2/3/2019Thomas would recommend this product to a friendBest skimmer I have used for the money.
Very solid By Dan on 1/15/2019Dan would recommend this product to a friendI've had this skimmer for 3 years and it pulls out thick green/brown skimmate. I found it very easy to assemble and dial in. It's also quiet and very efficient space-wise. Highly recommend.
Good skimmer By Dustin on 6/30/2018Dustin would recommend this product to a friendWith a sicce pump it has no problem running and pulling out skimmate. It lacks the details of a higher end skimmer. It has no silicon feet so it moves around. You cannot fully disassemble every part for cleaning which bothers me to no end. The gate is loose in the keeper which can raise and lower the water without warning.
It's a good entry level skimmer if you need one but don't want to spend a lot of money on one.
Great skimmer By D on 6/19/2018D would recommend this product to a friendPurchased this skimmer for my cadlights 50 long. It fits great in the sump. Pulls black skimate. The quietest skimmer I have ever used and very easy to tune. I run mine in 7” of water.
Great skimmer By Tim on 4/21/2018Tim would recommend this product to a friendVery pleased with my purchase. The skimmer was easy to set up, solid construction and works quickly and well. I was pulling nice dark skim in a day.
My only regret is that I went with the 120 instead of the 160.
Works great. By Cookie The Swede on 3/17/2018Cookie The Swede would recommend this product to a friendSmall footprint and was producing that great tea color skimmate after 24 hours of use.
Only issue I could see is if this is your first cone skimmer the instructions to put it together is a little lacking.
Great Skimmer By nickidml on 1/5/2018nickidml would recommend this product to a friendWhen this skimmer was first released, there was limited reviews available. I'm not one to purchase a product without thorough research to find it's a proven item first. I was frustrated it was not available for sale on BRS, which partially led me to question its quality. However, what was available for reviews on other sites was all positive. This small footprint and simple design was exactly what I needed so I ended up biting the bullet and purchasing it from another retailer, despite my reservations. I have been nothing but pleased. It is perfect. Good quality. Highly efficient. Basically no break in period. I am happy to see BRS has finally added it to their catalog!
