High-performance protein skimmer boasts advanced design for effective waste removal. The Coralife Cone Skimmer employs a patented Needle Wheel aspiration system with a Posi-Flow pump for maximum micro-bubble production. Combined with a distinct cone-shaped reaction chamber, the result is drier, more productive skimmate in the collection cup. In other words, you and your aquarium inhabitants enjoy cleaner, clearer water essential for marine aquarium success! The Coralife Cone Skimmer is for in-sump use.

Coralife Cone Skimmer
Detailed Product Features
Wide Bubble Diffusion Plate
The wide bubble diffusion plate uniformly disperses bubbles at the core of the reaction chamber. Multiple holes ensure bubbles are spread across the entire skimmer column allowing for maximum bubble-to-water exposure.
Water Level Adjustment and Dual Air Inlets
Use the water adjustment dial to easily stabilize water flow within the reaction chamber. The dual air inlets and silencer allow for quiet, precise bubble production control.
The efficient and reliable Posi-Flow pump is conveniently nestled in the skimmer base. This reduces the footprint, while maintaining quiet operation. The pump and needle-wheel impeller can easily be accessed by simply removing the venturi inlet and skimmer base.
The Coralife Cone Skimmer is a high-performance foam fractionator designed with a patented needle-wheel impeller and aspirating venturi. The advanced cone-shaped design allows for an unrestricted flow of foam to the collection cup. This flow pattern naturally reduces the amount of water between air bubbles as the foam rises to
efficiently produce a drier more productive skimmate in the collection cup.
Why Are Coralife Cone Skimmers More Efficient?
The advanced cone-shaped design concentrates the foam as it rises, resulting in more efficient skimming. The surface-to-surface interaction between water and air bubbles is maximized lower in the column where the micro-bubbles attach to the organic proteins in your aquarium water. As the bubbles rise, the cone shape naturally concentrates the foam at the top to reduce the amount of water between micro-bubbles. This produces a drier and more productive foam as it reaches the collection cup.
