Hi everyone, we are excited to announce our newest product line-up. We received our first shipment of Protein Skimmers later last week after testing a sample unit for several weeks with great results.


The Skimmers are ran by DC3000 pumps, which include a controller that allows for fine tuning of the skimmers output with 6 different flow settings.


Each Skimmer is made with cell-cast acrylic and is rated for up to 200 gallons of water volume. The protein skimmers are very reasonably priced, the D700 is only $274.99 shipped, and similar protein skimmers start at around $500.


At this time, the D700 is available for immediate shipment, and smaller sizes will follow suit in the coming months. You can order through our website here:

how would it do for a 220 gallon???? what depth do they do best in....I use eshopps refugium sump
It would do well on a medium stocked tank that size, the water height would be good anywhere from 6-8", you can adjust the speed of the pump so you have quite a bit of flexibility.

Wow, very nice. Any special offer price?
Not currently, similar skimmers go for $500+, and we have slim margins on these.

lol, no worries. I would imagine you can go pretty low, as long as the pump is submerged, and somewhat high on water level, but too much height, I would say over 10", might affect the skimmer's operation.

What would you say this skimmer is comparable to?
Also what is the minimum this skimmer can fit into? I see it says 8.75"
They are comparable to a similarily sized reef octopus in terms of output, they have their own unique look and shape though, so that is hard to compare to something already on the market.

I would say a 9" square would be the minimum needed, but 10" would be better.

Can you double check that? That pump won't support a skimmer with a 6" neck. From the pic I'd guess 4".

If I didn't buy an RO POV DC1 not too long ago I'd give this a shot. Honestly I'm temped to pick one up just to compare the two since they are similar in size and pumps.
