Best Choice Products® Huge Aquarium Tank Protein Skimmer Filter w/ Power Pump
Not only does it fit ALL aquarium tanks, our Protein Skimmer works great for marine reef aquariums such as saltwater coral, reef, and fish tanks.
When the skimmer works, oxygen enters the pump chamber and is stirred, pressed by the impellers. Abundant mini bubbles produced are mixed with water, enter vortex chamber and rotate at high speeds. Trough the tension effect of the mini bubbles, protein, heavy metal elements, fibers and other organic element will be powerfully absorbed. As a result, water will be purified and oxygen will be added.
Purchase our Protein Skimmer for your aquarium to increase oxygen and wave movements for the most natural eco-friendly environment and a cleaner tank. Watch your fish and corals live healthier and actively bring the ocean into your aquarium!

Good skimmer for the priceMay 18, 2010
By Jeremy Logan
This skimmer is great for the price. It's not as fancy as some but it does a better job than some that are twice the price. If your looking for extras look elsewhere but if your looking for a good functioning low price you found it. The only thing I would consider changing is the lack of instruction. If you dont have a decent knlodge of how a skimmer works or how to "tune" it some help would be a good thing. Otherwise within 24 hours i had a nice dark thick sludge in the cup, to me thats all I neede to see to give this a good review.

Hope it doesn't breakOct 28, 2010
By Beth B.
This protein skimmer initially does a good job but the pump is very cheap and breaks easily. Mine broke after just a few monthes and I just got off the phone with BestChoice and they told me that you can't replace the pump. So now I have a 100 dollar paper weight. Which is a shame because for the short time it worked it did a good job. My suggestion is spend a little more and get a protein skimmer that has readily available replacement parts.

GREAT deal!!!Feb 20, 2013
I purchased this skimmer for my mixed coral / fish tank and couldn't be happier. It performs well and removes a ton of gunk. There are no fancy names on it but who cares? My fish are happy and the tank is spotless.
As for the person who had a failed pump and commented the skimmer used a non standard thread... The outlet of the skimmer body is non standard but an adapter to 1/2" thread is supplied. I removed the U pipe and plumbed my own fittings without any problem. You can easily replace the pump on this skimmer.
Special note on the seller - My skimmer arrived with a tiny crack in the neck. I was able to glue it and had no plans on returning it. I emailed Bestchoice to see if I could purchase a new neck piece and not even three days later a brand new skimmer shows up at my house, free of charge.

Great deal.Apr 02, 2012
By John H
This skimmer far exceeded my expectation . It was very easy to set up . I've had it for a couple of weeks and I've had to clean out the skimmer cup a few times already. This thing actually started collecting skimmate within hours of assembly. This is a great value for the job it does. I would and have recommended this to all salt water hobbyists I know.

Great product and great price!Jul 07, 2013
I have this skimmer running now on a 120 Gallon Cube Reef Tank and after a 24 hours it pulled out a lot of skimate.
The product was easy to setup but you need a little understanding on how skimmers work because the instructions are worthless. I would give 5 stars if they were better.
One note on setup: Don't submerge the skimmer completely as it will not create enough back pressure and the cup will overflow. Other than that, this skimmer works really great. For the money, it's a great deal. The pump alone is worth the money.
