Product Description

Size: 65-Gallon

Product Description

Protein skimmers have become a standard component in saltwater and reef aquarium filtration systems as they are very effective at removing dissolved organic compounds from aquarium water. The Coralife Super Skimmer is a high-performance foam fractionator designed with a patented needle-wheel impeller and aspirating venturi. An improved energy saving pump increases the performance of the skimmer without increasing power demand. The needle-wheel system creates a spiraling vortex of water and micro bubbles inside the reaction chamber where the bubbles attract fine proteins and organic compounds and deposit them in the collection cup. The result is a clean and healthy aquarium environment.

Customer Reviews

Go with this skimmer if you're a novice like me.
Richard
Slight changes in the water chemistry cause the collection cup to overflow easily (as the problem with many skimmers).
Joe
I have been running this skimmer on a 30 gallon tank for over a week now, it really works great.

This skimmer is probably the cheapest skimmer I could find for my 55 gal reef tank. And it works well. I'm sure you get what you pay for in some things, so itsn't as robust as some of the other skimmers. But does the trick. I empty the skimmer about twice a week. It hooks up fine. Only beef I have with it is that you need to unplug the unit before unscrewing the top collection bin to empty it. I always clean it with some paper towels when emptying it cause it gets a little stinky. I'd recommend this product to anyone doing thier first reef tank. Cause it's affordable. And we all know how expensive salt water tanks can be.

I have been running an AquaC EV-240 with a mag 12 pump for over a year on my 300 gallon fowlr tank, I will tell the AquaC is one of the best dry skimmers on the market, but thats all they do, I put a coralife 220 super skimmer in the sump beside the AquaC and I do have to say, I feel the Coralife with the needle wheel technology is a far superior skimmer over the high pressure injection of the AquaC, as the needle wheel pump creates far more smaller air bubbles, and we all know, the more bubbles means more contact for the skimmate to be removed more efficiently.

I have been running this skimmer on a 30 gallon tank for over a week now, it really works great. The skimmer only took 24 hours to break-in and now is pulling some dark smelly skimmate from my tank. I can see how easy it is to overflow the unit, which would be a problem for a hang on tank setup. It is easy to add an overflow modification to the collection cup. It was a little tricky to get the water level set right, but it is running great now. I would definitely recommend this skimmer to anyone. I purchased from petsolutions for $91 with shipping.

Let me start out by saying I bought this 65 gallon model as a replacement for a two week-old SeaClone 100, and am I glad! I found this in the local Petco for $199 and looked it up on thier website, where they wanted $119 + Tax with free shipping, the store refused to match thier own website price. So I was planning to buy it from the website, but then I said "Self, you're an Amazon Prime member, lets check the price there!", so I did. So with a shipping upgrade of $3.99, in less than 24 hours the box was at my front door; total cost: $115.19, enough said!

OPERATION: Now for the product, so after setting this up (like all the others say, throw out the directions, they are useless) I could not get it to work properly (pumped water but no bubbles), after disassembling checking everything, and reassembling, it still would not produce bubbles; I could have saved a hour plus by simply blowing in the air tube and kick-starting the venturi action (doh!), so try this first! Within minutes this unit produced more foam and removed more protein than the SeaClone 100 did in two weeks; and 24 hours later the micro-bubble pattern in the unit is starting to take shape, reducing the amount of bubbles pumped into the tank. I hope that when it breaks in the bubbles in the tank cease completely, so I will update this in a few more days. It wasn't to difficult to balance the flow, I set the output valve to 50% then adjusted the input valve, located near the pump, until the water and micro-bubble concentration point was halfway up the cup port; this allows me to use the ouput adjustment to set the levels for either the "Dry Skim" or "Wet Skim" methods as described in the directions (the only useful part of the manual).

Great value for a skimmer I use on my 40 gallon tank. Took several weeks to season and it can be touchy to adjust. Once you get it fine tuned and seasoned it works just fine. Coralife's tech support is awesome. I washed a rubber bushing down the drain and they mailed me replacements free of charge. While its not the best skimmer available on the market you couldn't ask for a better skimmer for the money.

Right out the box it took me a while to hook up this skimmer, guess it was easier looking at the photos on the box and assemble this unit. First putting it in the tank, it produced lots of bubbles both in the unit and most of all in the tank wow what a mess!! I have a 55g salt water with corals and fish I needed something to work well with my investments, anyway, I found out that the shorter house that's connected to the pump works best and produced right mixture of air and water, after running this thing for 3 days the fourth day it just magically start working as it should, it did say a break in period, just leave it turn off the light and go do something else. I did not have to cut anything to make it work, just a little patience that I didn't have at all, so leave the bubbles in the tank alone, I only had the inflow valve set on half, then when it start working well I opened it to full, and with the red water level was set to almost between 80-90%, hope this makes sense, but no bubbles in my tank at all, water is crystal clear and clean. I had the Prizm red sea skimmer and thought I had a good skimmer until I go this one, oh my gosh I emptied the cup 5 days after it started working properly, some serious gunk in there real dark green and smelly, it was pulling out stuff like a sewer, to really clean the cup you need to unplug and unscrew the cup then wash it, but there is also a leak valve at the bottom of the cup, there is a small tube for this, and that's what I use when I don't want to unplug and fully clean, this skimmer is so quiet and smoother, only sound you hear is the little bubbles going back into the tank from the bubble diffuser. I have been running it for 2 weeks now and no problem just save all your tubing and connections. Its a bit bulky expecially above my T5 light.
