A Protein Skimmer is a very important tool in reducing the amount of dissolved organic material in the aquarium water. This material consists of protein fragments and other waste, which assemble at air/water surfaces. Protein skimming (also called foam fractionation) can be considered as a form of mechanical filtration, since it is a physical process of removing substances from water, without any chemical or biological action. While a mechanical or pre-filter removes particles, a Protein Skimmer removes suspended or dissolved organic waste and invisible particles from the aquarium water. The advantage of Protein Skimming lies however in the fact that waste material is continuously removed, separating it from the water flow. Efficient removal of dissolved waste helps to reduce the amount of harmful floating bacteria, reduce the yellow discoloration of your aquarium water, limit nitrate and phosphate build up, and prevent the development of slime algae.
The Prizm is sized and priced to deliver the absolute best results for the serious hobbyist while remaining very affordable. Incorporating all of the benefits described above the Prizm is without a doubt the best skimmer available today for any aquarium up to 100 gallons. The Prizm is an ideal starting point for anyone setting up a new tank or interested in maximizing the results on their existing aquarium. The Prizm can be easily upgraded to a Deluxe version with the purchase of an upgrade kit.
The slim line profile (only 2.4” wide) allows the Prizm to be discretely hung on behind the aquarium or on the side of the sump, with it’s fully submersible motor it can even be placed inside the sump! The numerous advantages of the Prizm make this the ideal skimmer of choice for the serious hobbyist.
