German-engineered internal protein skimmer boasts superior, energy-efficient performance in compact spaces. Tunze Comline DOC Skimmer employs flash skimming principle to maximize removal of dissolved organic compounds. Powerful streams of micro-bubbles scour aquarium water of pollutants to ensure high water quality. Compact footprint and simple "plug and play" design allows effortless installation and operation in most all-in-one nano aquariums.
Tunze Comline DOC Skimmer is a great choice for small marine aquariums. There is no complicated setting or regular adjustment required for reliable operation. Distinct surface intake design maximizes removal of oily proteinaceous surface film that competing protein skimmers have difficulty removing. Airflow regulator and silencer ensure exceptionally quiet operation. Clever "floating" magnetic mount system minimizes skimmer contact with aquarium glass to reduce potential scratching.

Tunze Flash Skimming Principle
The Tunze Flash Skimming Principle enables highly efficient foam production. Organic-rich surface water is mixed thoroughly with small air bubbles in the Tunze Foamer. On the surface of the air bubbles, pollutants such as protein, cellulose, dead cells, etc. are adsorbed immediately. The air bubbles are very fine, with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3 mm (0.004 - 0.012 in.).
The water/air mixture expands and stabilizes in the skimmer cup reactor, the water returns to the aquarium, and the protein-loaded air bubbles spill over into the skimmer cup. The intermediate chamber features a patented anti-over foaming system to prevent the skimmer from over-foaming and controls skimmer performance, depending on the water level and organic load.
The particularly high efficiency of the Tunze Flash Skimming Principle, compared to large skimmers with long contact time, is obtained because the substances adsorbed by the air bubbles are not released again, thus they don't return to the aquarium water.
Tunze Corporate Philosophy
Since its establishment in 1960, Tunze has been focusing on providing its customers with high-quality products and thus a unique aquarium experience. Tunze will continue to do everything they can to surprise you and improve water quality in the closed circulation system of an aquarium.
A vision statement is an expression of the corporate philosophy and goals of a company. Based on such a vision, state-of-the-art, excellent quality and design pumps were developed from the existing Turbelle pumps. Today, quality and environmental compatibility are major challenges, as high energy-consumption is expensive and harms the environment. Tunze pumps are continuously developed further in order to keep setting new performance/power consumption standards, i.e. minimum heat transfer to the water and reliability. Internal production processes are also adjusted even more consistently to environmental criteria. Tunze priorities include reduction of CO2 emissions and optimization of energy efficiency to achieve minimum power consumption.
What is a product without good service? Tunze wants to make sure that service goes beyond sale. On the Internet, you have access to the whole range of Tunze products, instructions, videos, configurator, etc. All available spare parts can be ordered there directly. If you have any questions, please send Tunze an email or call the Tunze telephone hotline. Tunze would be more than happy to help.
The Tunze design language is not only reflected by the shape and appearance of a product, but also by the superior performance compared to typical market components. Tunze keeps focusing on opening new horizons and, calling everything into question in order to ensure that Tunze technology meets the current requirements, in regards to aquarium ecology and electrical engineering.
