Aquarium Protein Skimmer DG 1400 l/h (400mm)

Reef aquarium external protein skimmer with 400mm high reaction chamber. Water pump operated, internal water flow adjustment, air intake is equipped with a sound suppressor, removable collection cup. DG-model has a flexible return hose for the processed water.

This is an external protein skimmer which is placed next to an aquarium. The skimmer body is connected to a submerged water pump with shaped pipes over the aquarium wall. Although this skimmer looks like a hang-on model, it must be placed on a solid base. The connector pipes can only support the weight of the water pump, the skimmer body is far too heavy when filled with water. This model can also be used in a sump as a free-standing internal skimmer.

NOTE! Beneficial protein skimmer size depends on reef aquarium inhabitants and care. Skimmer size should always be determined according to the actual waste load of the aquarium; the less there are fish and other animals that are being fed, the less there will be nitrate and phosphate addition to the water. Reef aquariums housing soft corals and macro algae (which need enough nutrients to thrive) will need much less skimming capacity than reef aquarium housing LPS or SPS corals (that will not tolerate high nutrient levels) when the aquarium size and number of fish are the same.

More than one skimmer can be used in one aquarium. Multiple skimmers are usable if marine aquarium is in a tight place where a larger (external) protein skimmer cannot be mounted or if there is a change in the needed skimming capacity (for example if more fish is acquired or aquarium is updated to a larger size), instead on buying a new larger skimmer one or more small low priced skimmers can be added in order to achieve larger skimming capacity.
