Maintaining good water quality is an extremely important factor in establishing a healthy and beautiful fish tank. The water needs to be free of toxic substances such as ammonia and nitrate. This is where protein skimmers come in handy. These devices remove organic and inorganic compounds (proteins) that contain the harmful amino acids and help maintain the correct levels in your aquarium.
For many marine aquarium owners, protein skimmers are an absolute necessity to remove the waste products from fish, plants and invertebrates. The action of the skimmer can also increase oxygen levels throughout the water, a great benefit to all aquariums.
A protein skimmer can work well alongside a fish tank filter in your aquarium. We have a wide range of high performance skimmers from leading manufacturers such as Aqua Medic and Deltec.
