Powerful and Highly Efficient Skimmer

hygger protein skimmer is equipped with a honeycomb-shaped diversion plate in the chamber, which differs from most protein skimmers. The unique honeycomb-shaped diversion plate creates denser bubbles and prevents backflow.
This special design slows down the turbulence inside the reaction chamber and creates a steady laminar flow, which allows more time to create better and more skim mate. The air intake silencer removes suction noise completely.

Better Performance

Powerful and low noise DC pump with needle wheel impeller design combines air and water to generate lots of fine and smooth bubbles. A honeycomb head in the reaction chamber is used to cut the foam, prevent the bubbles/foam from returning, and increase the area and time for waste collection, which makes the protein skimmer obtain better performance.

Effectively Removes Organic Waste

The mini protein skimmer effectively removes organic waste and other pollutants before they break down into compounds that can harm the aquarium inhabitants. Help to make your tank crystal clear.

Adjustable Flow Rate

You can rotate the skimmer’s body to make water level adjustment easy. The foam collection and moisture levels can be adjusted by moving the water outlet higher or lower. The unique cone-shaped reactor chamber allows bubble collection easily.

Small And Compact Skimmer

It can work as a saltwater protein skimmer and is also great for small aquariums and mini-reef aquariums up to 57 gallons(215L). It mounts inside the sump or hangs on the back of the marine tanks to fit in most rear overflow or filtration compartments. Now you can have a reef tank in your home without worrying about spaces.

Easy to Clean

This mini protein skimmer is easy to set up and runs a super-quiet operation. The adjustable skimmer height bracket fits standard aquarium frames, and the quick-lock design on the collection cup allows easy cleaning. You can simply remove the collection cup to dispose of tank waste.

Directions for Use

Clean the skimmer:

Open the drain tube, the sewage valve makes draining skim mate really easy, and you no longer need to pour the collection cup every three days.

    Inexpensive and works great! I have a 40 gallon cube aquarium. This little skimmer does the job. At first, I did get a ton of tiny air bubbles shooting out. That stopped after a few days. This little skimmer does the job. It’s easy to clean. I never use anything but my clean hands and water to clean it. No risk of introducing anything. Skimmer is strong and relatively easy to get stable. This is a simple, small skimmer. The skimmer cup was super easy to remove and dump. My water doesn’t have any froth, smell or particulates.
    All in all, if you want a simple, inexpensive skimmer for a small aquarium, this is perfect.
