Instant Ocean SeaClone Protein Skimmers
Starting at: $89.99
The SeaClone provides superior turbo-venturi skimming
for efficient removal of dissolved organics and waste from your aquarium. The exclusive turbo-venturi injector system mixes filtered water and air in the pump impeller chamber, generating a froth of micro-bubbles for maximum skimming and improved gas exchange. Air and water swirl together in the vortex reaction chamber, creating a powerful tornado effect that rapidly draws dissolved wastes from aquarium water. Protein-laden bubbles are propelled upward, where they are trapped in a large capacity collection cup, which requires less emptying.
Comes with a Maxi-Jet 1200 pump. Ideal for external hang-on or in-sump installation.

Been in this hobby for over 40 years. This is the most user friendly and most forgiving of all skimmers on the market. Performs evenly with other models that are twice the price. Have no issues leaving home for a few days and leaving it on. As always will take a week or two on a new tank to start removing your protein load as the tank ages. Once a month clean the salt buildup from the air intake tube and rinse the foam pre-filter when dirty. Other than that it is a great unit. If placed by sunlight cover the chamber tube with masking tape to eliminate algae issues. Set it and forget it !!!!! Great unit.

I've had mine for about 3 yrs. and it does a good job. Gets a little crazy sometimes and spews out some tiny bubbles but I just unplug it and then plug it back in the next day and all is well. IMPORTANT: VERY QUIET. DON'T KNOW IT'S ON. I would recommend it.

Bought this skimmer for my 30 gallon. It takes a little while to get going. Mine didn't really start skimming for 4 weeks. But once it did it worked great. The higher priced one are better for longevity, but if money is tight or you are just starting out, this will do what ya need.
