The SR Aquaristik PRO Skim 80 In-Sump Protein Skimmer quickly removes organic waste from saltwater aquarium water. A powerful needle wheel impeller pump creates ideal sized air bubbles that force organic protein into a collection cup for easy removal. The SR PRO Skim 80 is recommended for aquariums from 50-80 gallons. SR PRO Skim 80 Skimmers are built using flame polished cell-cast acrylic. The SR Protein Skimmer is equipped with bubble plates, modified cone necks, air silencers and needle wheel impellers for maximum performance and quiet operation. They also have minimized footprints to make installation as easy as possible in smaller sumps.
Recommendations for Use:
We recommend running the Pro Skim 80 between 8 and 10 inches below the waterline. If your sump is deeper, we normally use PVC spacers made by simply cutting 1½" PVC pipe to the appropriate length and placing them under the base of the skimmer.
