Welcome to the patent-pending automatic self-cleaning protein skimmer!  Novel rectangular design completely eliminates the skimmer cup and neck.  The skimmate or gunk accumulation zone has a fully automated, digitally-controlled self-cleaning assembly.  The motor turns on once daily and the filter fleece captures the gunk and wipes clean the upper skimmer walls.  A large PVC drain at the top allows the liquid skimmate to be collected into a large (not included) reservoir.  If you are sick of skimmer maintenance, this skimmer is for you!

Ideal for 100 gallon aquarium with higher bio loads up to 200 gallon aquarium with lighter bio loads.

Powerful and Quiet DC Pump

Our controllable brushless DC pump is powerful and quiet. Includes 40W UL-certified power supply, venturi-connector and bubble diffuisng chamber. Controller features include delayed-start (3 mins) and feed mode (15 mins).

Automatic Self-Cleaning

The top asssembly holds a roll of filter fleece, and the digitally controlled motor turns on and rotates once daily. The skimmate / scum accumulates on the filter fleece, and the filter fleece wipes the inner skimmer walls clean. Periodically, the dirty roll is discarded and replaced with a clean roll. Rolls last 3 months or more.

Ultra Low Maintenance

Filter fleece will last 3 month or more, depending on how you set the motor controller. Available large reservoir holds over 1 gallon of liquid skimmate. You can easily go months without having to touch the skimmer. Never mess with a skimmer cup and neck again!

For 100-200 Gallon Aquariums

The powerful DC pump and space-saving design means the skimmer can clean a heavily stocked 100 gallon (400L) aquarium or a more lightly stocked 200 gallon (800L) aquarium.
