Welcome to the patent-pending automatic self-cleaning protein skimmer!  The novel rectangular design completely eliminates the skimmer cup and neck.  The skimmate/ gunk accumulation zone has a fully automated, digitally-controlled self-cleaning motor assembly.  The motor turns on once daily and the filter fleece captures the gunk and wipes the skimmer walls clean.  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 is for you!

Designed for systems up to 200 gallons.  With the space-saving design, larger systems can have multiple adjacent units inside the sump.  Contact us for sizing or space considerations.

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.
