Ideal for use with V2Skim 300 and 500 Compact Protein Skimmers! (Please note to use this item with the V2Skim 300 and also 500 - you will need the V2Skim Modified intake strainer to connect the surface skimmer to the Main Skimmer!!)
In many aquariums a high percentage of accumulated dissolved proteins, detritus and waste material is found in the top few centimeters of the water. Most conventional aquarium filters cannot process this water as they generally draw and filter the water from the lower levels of the aquarium. As a result, a build up of detritus, proteins and organics can occur on the surface of the water which can lead to poor water quality and also to the deterioration of oxygen exchange and light penetration into the aquarium.
By installing this new V2Skim Compact Surface Skimmer this problem can be simply solved. Water can be drawn into your filter or protein skimmer from both the surface and the lower levels of the aquarium providing a significant increase in the removal of
dissolved proteins, detritus and waste material from the aquarium and an overall improvement in water quality.
The V2Skim Surface Skimmer has the following features,
- Unique patented floating intake strainer which automatically adjusts to changes in water level within the aquarium.
- Dual water intakes allow water to be drawn in from both the surface and lower levels within the aquarium.
- User friendly design allows for simple cleaning and maintenance.
- Universal connection allows for easy installation with the V2Skim 300 & 500 Compact Protein Skimmers (Please note to use this item with the V2Skim 300 and also 500 - you will need the V2Skim Modified intake strainer to connect the surface skimmer to the Main Skimmer!!)
