The Bubble Magus “Z” Series is a truly unique and original skimmer line designed to provide efficient skimming in tight spaces. Their minimal footprint makes them an excellent option for compact sumps as well as some all-in-one aquarium systems.  The Z-series skimmers utilize a very simple flow-through design with the internal water level being controlled by a belt-driven adjustment wheel on the exiting side, opposite the intake. The innovative collection cup has an integrated silencer, and conserves space by nesting alongside the skimmer body, with only minimal clearance needed above the skimmer. The Z-6 also utilizes a non-controllable DC circulation pump for reduced operating noise and energy consumption. If you’re tight on space but want to add a skimmer for additional waste reduction, the Z-8 may be the perfect fit.
